WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court gave a strong hint Monday that the justices are not anxious to rein in Congress’ broad power to pass regulatory laws under the Constitution’s commerce clause, the key point of dispute in the pending court battles over President Obama’s health insurance law.
By a 7-2 vote, the justices turned down a constitutional challenge to a 2002 law that makes it a federal crime for a felon to have body armor or a bulletproof vest. The law came in response to several shootouts involving police, including a bank robbery in North Hollywood where the robbers came equipped in body armor.
But the dispute in the Supreme Court concerned only whether Congress had the power to enact a law regulating the possession of a product — in this instance, body armor. An appeal filed on behalf of Cedrick Alderman, a Seattle man, argued that the possession of a bulletproof vest had nothing to do with interstate commerce and, therefore, was beyond Congress’ power.
“The federal power claimed is the authority to regulate anything — from the possession of French fries to the local theft of a Hershey’s Kiss,” Alderman’s lawyers argued.

Rothacker said that the dogs are trained to be so sensitive, they can detect residue of drugs, which can lead to “false positives.”

In January of 2007 I was hurt in a car crash. It was a traumatic experience that affected all aspects of my life. Not only was I in pain but my medical bills kept piling up. I felt helpless and alone. There was no way I could afford to pay for all the damage and I didn’t even feel like my own insurance company was on my side. I decided to contact the attorneys at Gregory, Easley & Ernstberger. It was the best decision I could have possibly made. They were caring and professional at the same time.
