On judges

From today's Telegram story by Dave Bartlett and James McLeod:
Outside the House of Assembly, Premier Danny Williams told reporters he doesn't foresee a lengthy court battle with Abitibi.

"I don't think there's going to be a court battle. If they get good legal opinions, those legal opinions are going to tell them this legislature has a right to do this," said Williams.

"The legislature is paramount," he said.

"I can't, obviously, pre-empt the right of any judge to pass a decision on any application that's put before him or her."

Can't pre-empt.

But We can post-empt to Our Dear Heart's content, We being such a Great Lawyer™ and all.
