No Defense

You suppose this is an example of what we'll be getting in the future?

His lawyer, W.C. Melcher, said in court papers that jail authorities defied repeated orders from the trial judge handling the case to provide law library access.

But the Constitution, you see, doesn't actually say that someone's legal right to defend themselves has to include access to information about the law.

Seems like "strict constructionism" has a firmer hold on the Federal judiciary than some of us suspected.
