Totalitarian "Mandate" Takes Another Hit

Seems as though the Federal courts don't cotton to totalitarianism.

Now there’s word from the Thomas More Law Center in Michigan that a federal judge there has set a court date of Sept. 26 for arguments on whether the Obama administration should be enjoined from enforcing the same mandate against Ann Arbor-based Weingartz Supply Co. and Legatus, the nation’s largest organization of top Catholic business leaders.

...As part of that court schedule, the judge noted, “the government agreed not to enforce the regulation against plaintiffs prior to Jan. 1, 2013 …”

In that case, Judge Robert H. Cleland ordered the briefing schedule and hearing set. He also instructed that the plaintiffs’ original motion for a temporary restraining order, which would have stopped enforcement of the mandate for up to 14 days, be converted into a motion for a preliminary injunction.

That "injunction" stuff is serious.

A Federal Judge just stopped the Obamaists from implementing their Indefinite Detention program, but the administration lawyers have essentially stated that they're going to ignore the Court ruling.

How nice.
