Chief Justice Roberts Dissents

The Supreme's have ruled on the Oregon Law that allowed physician assisted suicide and, in true conservative fashion, our new Chief Justice, along with Justices Scalia and Thomas, dissented while Justice Kennedy wrote for the majority (Justices O'Connor, Souter, Ginsburg, Stevens and Breyer) in a 6-3 vote.

It's rumored that Kennedy, who is usually more conservative, will be the new swing voter when Justice O'Connor retires and her replacement steps in.

Now we just need to get the Supreme's to hurry and decide on Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood so O'Connor's voice will still be heard and not Alito's.
