The Court Order of the U.S. District Court
addresses several issues raised by the Plaintiffs. The
issue that we are interested in is the "Political Question"
doctrine as it applies to the U.S. Constitution,
14th Amendment. The case was dismissed for want of
subject matter jurisdiction.
What is interesting about this case, is
that while it was pending before the Court, an Attorney from
Alabama was challenging the ratification of the
U.S. Constitution, 16th Amendment. Several
Federal Courts accepted his cases as being
justifiable, then dismissed his cases based upon the
merits of the case.
There appears to be a double standard, one
which is applied to Pro Se litigants and another that is
applied to Attorneys.
