As reported here ("A flap over foreign matter at the Supreme Court," 3/11/04) by MSNBC, Congressman Bob Goodlatte is one of the sponsors of a Congressional resolution telling the Supreme Court that they are wrong to be citing foreign law as if that could provide any basis for the interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. That would be almost as bad as citing case law from the Ninth Circuit.
