Fruit of the Poison Tree


There are plenty of others who can give you smarter and more knowledgable takes on the Janus decision. It’s terrible. As Justice Kagan says, it’s weaponizing the First Amendment, a new interstate commerce clause, only for power rather than rights. The only very mild saving grace in the Janus decision is that labor saw this coming a mile away and they’ve had time to prepare as much as possible. There’s not a lot they can do but there are steps to mitigate the damage. The decision itself is the purest form of right wing judicial activism and illegitimate because it relies on the corrupt appointment of Justice Gorsuch.
