SCOTUS Issues Several Rulings

The U.S. Supreme Court handed down several opinions yesterday, and generally one can see a trend towards a Right-leaning Court beginning to form. Two of the more remarkable aspects of yesterday's rulings were victories for free speech in striking down part of McCain-Feingold and the barring of taxpayer standing as a way of attacking faith-based organizations that apply for federal funding under President Bush's Faith-based Initiative.

How Appealing has a run down of the four rulings from Monday, including links to the opinions issued by the Court.

The AP's Mark Sherman has a good summation, including a quote from Democrat John Edwards that stenches of hyperbole.
