Spanish Judge Misjudges His Own Authority

Posted by Mike on October 22, 2007

The United States does not have a monopoly on out-of-control judges.  Take Spain for example.  A Spanish judge recently ordered the Catholic Church to cancel a Valencia man’s baptism certificate.  The Curt Jester rightly questions the court’s jurisdiction and suggests that the man seek out “John the Debaptizer” instead.  Heh.

In all seriousness though, I wonder how long it will take Justice Breyer to try to cite this Spanish decision as binding persuasive authority here in the U.S.?

    What is up with Spain! Electing a socialist government, letting the terrorists intimidate them out of Iraq, now letting the church be sued for frivilous things, what’s next abortions for all? Maybe not, but they are veering more and more to the Left as times goes on.

    And I agree, Mike, Justice Breyer has probably spent a considerable amount of time looking at this case and it may appear cited in a minority (fingers crossed!) opinion someday.
