Some laws are more settled than others

We’ve heard over and over about “settled law” from Democrats.  Of course, this is their way of defending Roe v. Wade.   

For the record, I don’t think that Supreme Court opinions are law.  They are opinions that can be changed by future justices.  Unlike laws, they can be overturned by a single justice.  Laws, on the other hand, have to be repealed requiring a vote and presidential signature.

Nevertheless, the Democrats have a funny way of practicing their “settled law” dogma.

We learned this week that California has not accepted the Janus decision about public sector unions.  This is from Eric Boston:  

In June, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down longstanding precedent by ruling that public sector unions could not force workers to pay dues if those same workers decline to join the union.

The ruling significantly reshapes the role that public sector unions play in American politics, so it’s pretty difficult to imagine that there were any labor unions not watching the case. Yet months later, some unions seem not to have gotten the message.

Several California unions, the SEIU in particular, have continued to collect dues from non-members in defiance of Supreme Court decision.  Have the Democrats in California heard about “settled law”?

So here is a crazy idea. Judge Brett Kavanaugh should respond to Senator Kamala Harris of California this way:  Senator, you want me to talk about settled law.  Do you believe that Janus is settled law?
