How crazy! HE entered as Antoine & should stay Antoine. HE gets out in just months anyway.
The story didn't say why he is in prison or how long he has been there. But I don't think that really matters.
IF someone is taking erectile dysfunction meds when they get locked up can they sue to keep getting them? INSANE.

1st; That should be "you're" and NOT 'your'. 2nd; Why would I be jealous of Progressive stupidity?
There is NO Constitutional reason that such a case would even be under the pervue of a federal court. IF there is, it needs to be explained in detail.
It is a State issue as clearly defined in the Constitution & definition of a Federal Republic. The U.S. courts have no standing in such an issue.
But you & others have NO comprehension that the Constitution clearly states that any power not SPECIFICALLY given to the FEDS is solely the power of the STATES & this is NOT a Federal issue.
An issue is that the SCOTUS has sole power to accept or deny any case that it is petitioned to hear. Through out, time they have accepted cases that are NOT under their lawful authority. But once ruling so, it pretty much becomes the 'law of the land.'
Examples being; Whether I agree or disagree with their rulings, the SCOTUS has NO jurisdiction for abortion or so called basic"Gay rights". I could go on on those 2 issues but you would not understand or accept.
The problem is as I have previously stated, IF the SCOTUS is petitioned to hear a case, & THEY accept, it becomes a Federal Case even when they have NO authority to rule on certain cases. It is HUBRIS on the part of the SCOTUS.
It is social, political & personal on their part. NOT lawful or Constitutional..

U.S. District Judge Algenon L. Marbley has dismissed a complaint brought against Ohio state officials who hunted for details about “Joe the Plumber” when the working man confronted then-candidate Barack Obama during his campaign for the presidency in 2008.

The civil-rights lawsuit was filed by Judicial Watch on behalf of Joe Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber,” against state officials who, reportedly in their pursuit of support for Obama, had state databases searched for information about Wurzelbacher.

However, Marbley dismissed the action, ruling there was no real damage to Wurzelbacher when officials searched police, social services and other databases for his details.
