When European law overrules American law

Powerline's Hindrocket asks
[C]an anyone articulate a philosophy of jurisprudence in which European opinion, however manifested, is given priority over American opinion, as expressed in laws passed by legislators?
I should hope not, but that appears to be what's going on in the Supreme Court these days. Yesterday a ruling came down which used European law to support a decision by the Court to overturn American law. Read the whole post for more details.

If there was ever any doubt that the upcoming judicial appointments were going to be important to our country, that ought to be gone by now.
