    I can't understand why there can't successfully be a case in the courts about this:

    To answer your question, it would never have gotten this far if the courts had stayed truly independent and stuck to their job.

    However, starting in the 1950's (after Brown v. Board of Education), the GOP and libertarians started working to strip the independence of the courts -- and they've pretty well succeeded. The courts now do what the prosecutors tell them to. They are handmaidens to the GOP's dirty politics and jaundiced paranoia.
