Rehnquist not happy with Congress

In an end of the year report, Supreme Court Justice Rehnquist ripped into the PROTECT Act — a federal law he said comes close to intimidating federal judges who hand down lighter sentences. He also blasted Congress for failing to adequately fund the judiciary.
Buried in this particular UPI report of Rehnquist’s year in review statement was the fact that in fiscal 2003, “criminal cases in trial courts hit a record 70,642, breaking a record set in 1932, one year before the 18th Amendment — the Prohibition Amendment — was repealed.”
Very interesting.
