An attack on King George's "grandiose claim"

By Diane Silver

The New York Times has a nice editorial today about why the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling is so important as an attack on "the whims of one president with an obvious disdain for the balance of powers."

The editorial does not tackle the issue of whether the ruling will stand, but instead talks about why the legal reasoning is a strong attack on the imperial presidency.
