  • Continuation of the last part.
  • The Supreme Court has the authority to hear all cases that include constitutional questions. We also believe that the Virginia Supreme Court has the right to fine the Cohen brothers.

  • The Supreme Court is reviewing Virginia court's ruling. The question in mind is: does the Supreme Court have the authority under the Constitution to review Virginia's courts ruling.
