quasi in rem

Newdow has no legs upon which to stand...Court keeps God in Pledge. Avoids controversy. Decides not to right the wrongs of 50 years of First amenment Jurisprudence.

"The justices ruled that California atheist Michael Newdow lacked the legal right to bring the challenge in the first place. 'We conclude that Newdow lacks standing,' Justice John Paul Stevens (news - web sites) declared in the opinion.
The ruling came down on the 50th anniversary of the addition of the words 'under God' to the pledge. Congress adopted the June 14, 1954, law in an effort to distinguish America's religious values and heritage from those of communism, which is atheistic"

Which is to say, if you get divorced, and you don't have custody of your kids, stay out of court.
