Did Kavanaugh Just Punk the Left on Roe?

Yes­ter­day the Supreme Court ruled 54 that con­sumers had stand­ing to sue Apple over it’s app store prac­tices.

The Lib­eral bloc voted with Jus­tice Kavan­u­agh to over­turn estab­lished prece­dent which main­tained that they would not have stand­ing (the rest of the con­ser­v­a­tive block said that the devel­op­ers not the con­sumers had such stand­ing) going back over 40 years.

Now the nature of soft­ware plat­forms makes ques­tions about monop­oly inter­est­ing and I have no direct opin­ion on the case myself but more inter­est­ing that the case itself here is the reactions.

Many are com­ment­ing on Kavanaugh sid­ing with the left here which is caus­ing some smiles and sug­gest­ing this might become a trend but I think a lot of peo­ple have missed the real point here.

The same left that has been scream­ing about the sanc­tity of Supreme Court prece­dent when it comes to Roe v Wade just voted unan­i­mously on the court that a prece­dent a few years younger than Roe v Wade could be tossed.

Sooner or later an abor­tion case will get up there (hope­fully after Ruth Gins­berg is gone) and the entire left will be talk­ing about how sacro­sanct the orig­i­nal Roe rul­ing was, and when that day comes Brett Kavanaugh will be able to point to this deci­sion to remind our friends on the left that they agreed with him that set­tled law is set­tled right up to the point that it isn’t,

Yesterday the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that consumers had standing to sue Apple over it’s app store practices.

The Liberal bloc voted with Justice Kavanuagh to overturn established precedent which maintained that they would not have standing (the rest of the conservative block said that the developers not the consumers had such standing) going back over 40 years.

Now the nature of software platforms makes questions about monopoly interesting and I have no direct opinion on the case myself but more interesting that the case itself here is the reactions.

Many are commenting on Kavanaugh siding with the left here which is causing some smiles and suggesting this might become a trend but I think a lot of people have missed the real point here.

The same left that has been screaming about the sanctity of Supreme Court precedent when it comes to Roe v Wade just voted unanimously on the court that a precedent a few years younger than Roe v Wade could be tossed.

Sooner or later an abortion case will get up there (hopefully after Ruth Ginsberg is gone) and the entire left will be talking about how sacrosanct the original Roe ruling was, and when that day comes Brett Kavanaugh will be able to point to this decision to remind our friends on the left that they agreed with him that settled law is settled right up to the point that it isn’t,
