Rule of Law Alive and Well Abroad
The World Justice Project published a “Rule of Law Index,” As with rankings on education, infant mortality, work hours, lifespan, retirement security, health, environmental impact, incarceration rates, violence, concentration of wealth, and other measures of quality of life come out, it is time once again for we Americans to shout “We’re NOT number one.” “We have become mediocre!”

The reason is that the US legal system has become a profit machine for the legal industry, and the consultants who feed off of it. If you don’t have money, forget about having justice.

The courts of appeals are partially to blame for this, because they have, increasingly, not “reported” their opinions. So, they have been avoiding the legal principle of stare decisis — which forces them to reconcile new opinions with old opinions. It is an irresponsible practice, and reflects a laziness on the part of the Courts of Appeals, and the other high state courts.
