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,
