Voter-Passed Measure 37 Law Is Overturned
SALEM, Ore. - A judge on Friday overturned a voter-passed property compensation law as unconstitutional.
Marion County Circuit Judge Mary James struck down the law as violating five provisions of the state and federal constitutions.
James said the statute violates equal protection provisions of the Oregon Constitution and a state constitutional ban on suspending laws.
If judges did this with right-wing decisions then we would have an open revolt. (admittedly, liberals are girlie-men, so it would be a short-lived revolt) Imagine if a judge ruled the progressive tax unconstitutional because it violates the equal protection clause.
