“It is time to focus not on justices but on the body of precedent they work from.” Amity Shlaes, 2010
Liberty Legal Foundation is dedicated to restoring Constitutional limits on government by overturning flawed legal precedent. We work towards this goal by filing lawsuits that challenge key legal precedent that is unconstitutional. The first battle we took on challenges the current legal interpretation of the Commerce Clause, as it was this interpretation that led Congress to believe they had the authority to pass Obamacare. The Obamacare Class Action not only seeks to overturn this completely onerous “health reform” bill but to also re-establish some significance of the 10th Amendment relative to the Commerce Clause. More than 28,000 Americans from all 50 states are named as individual plaintiffs in our nationwide Obamacare Class Action lawsuit (OCA) with more joining everyday.
Liberty Legal Foundation’s second battle, the Immigration Class Action (ICA), challenges the Federal government’s failure to secure our borders. The Obama administration’s recent lawsuit against Arizona raises the opportunity to challenge erroneous Supreme Court precedent on several issues including state sovereignty, standing doctrine, and pre-emption doctrine. As part of its lawsuit against Arizona, the Obama administration argued that Arizona’s law is pre-empted by Federal law. Liberty Legal Foundation will be pointing out that pre-emption begins with the presumption that Federal law is being enforced. The mere existence of Federal law, coupled with the Federal government’s explicit refusal to enforce its own law, should not prevent States from enforcing Federal law. Unfortunately, the District Court in Arizona has enjoined Arizona from enforcing Federal law. Liberty Legal Foundation will be engaging this battle with the aim to correct the District Court’s error and to force the Federal government to enforce Federal immigration law.
This war will take time and it will require your support. If you agree that our Constitution is being ignored by the Federal government and want to take an active role in reversing flawed legal precedent, please support Liberty Legal Foundation either directly or by joining the OCA and the ICA.
