Average Joe SCOTUS – BNSF Railway Co. v. Loos

This dude Loos worked at BNSF railway and got his dumb ass injured.

He was fired, because BNSF realized he was an idiot, and ain’t nobody got time for that shit.

Because he got hurt on the job, he sued and won money to compensate him for his injuries and lost wages, because apparently, being an idiot is an acceptable excuse for getting your dumb ass hurt on the job.

BNSF took out taxes, because you know the govt don’t give a f*** where the money comes from, they want a cut.

Loos sued because he wanted all his cash, saying it was money for injury, and not pay that would be subject to normal tax.

SCOTUS ruled 7:2, the majority basically saying IDGAF where the money came from or why, we’re taking our cut, bitch. Federal Govt is life, dawg!

Average Joe SCOTUS – Republic of Sudan v. Harrison

In 2000, Al Qaeda bombed the USS Cole. Remember that shit?

Well, the families of the people injured, believing that Sudan had enabled those mother***ers, sued Sudan for damages.

New York sent a letter to the Sudanese embassy in the US to be delivered to their minister of foreign affairs in Sudan.

Sudan basically argued the suit should have been delivered directly to Sudan, in the country of Sudan, and not to the embassy as an intermediary.

SCOTUS in an 8:1 decision agreed, that the embassy can’t be trusted with that shit, and determined all suits must be delivered directly to the person in question.

Clarence Thomas thinks on this issue, the other 8 justices are idiots.

Average Joe SCOTUS – Bucklew v. Presythe

This asshole named Bucklew murdered someone and was sentenced to death.

Bucklew found some medical info, likely bullshit, that said because he has some weird medical condition, he might choke to death vs just dying from the lethal injection peacefully—thus deeming his execution cruel and unusual, because you know, he’s f***ing special or something.

Bucklew also thought the people giving the injection were probably buffoons, and he was afraid they’d f*** it up.

SCOTUS poetically said, “F*** you, Bucklew! You’ll die how we say you’ll die, and you’ll like it”

SCOTUS also said, “Who the f*** you think you are, bitch? I’m sure they hired competent peeps to end you. Deal with it.”

And by SCOTUS, I mean the five conservative justices. The other four fought valiantly, but lost anyway.
