Fredblogs has obviously not read the complaint that alleges standing on the basis of MN law, unlike federal law. MN law gives standing to taxpayers to challenge the expenditure of public funds by a state agency on the basis of illegality. If MN BBCC chooses to appeal, which it should, having read the briefs at the MN BBC website and the judge’s decision, the court’s failure to acknowledge MN Supreme Court authority directly on point should result in an easy reversal, at least as to that point. There is no other rational justification for the court ignoring black letter MN law on taxpayer standing other than the the “Israel factor” which has poisoned honest debate and decisionmaking in America’s public institutions, including the courts. Fredblog’s comments are the standard regurgitated hasbara pablum of standing with Israel despite the law and the facts. Read the briefs and the complaint and then see if you can then offer an intelligent comment.
