Hot new legal consideration: Does it honor President Obama?

Yesterday, Michigan Ingham Country Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina ruled that Detroit’s bankruptcy filing must be withdrawn because it is in her opinion unconstitutional (in Michigan, “reality is unconstitutional”).

Before issuing her ruling, Aquilina said this:

“It’s cheating, sir, and it’s cheating good people who work,” the judge told assistant state Attorney General Brian Devlin. “It’s also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroit’s auto companies) out of bankruptcy.”

The state court’s equivalent of Chris Matthews also remarked that she’d make sure President Obama received a copy of her order and that “I know he’s watching this.” So much for the separation of powers — take that, Montesquieu.

Yesterday, Obama backers argued that the city of Detroit and the U.S. automakers that received bailouts are not synonymous. If that’s the case, they might want to have a chat with this judge.
