State Vital Duty, Failure

Supreme Court Justice Brennan, in writing the minority dissent on the DeShaStaney case, spoke well to the gravity of the injustice that would be perpetrated by the decision. "My disagreement with the Court," Justice Brennan wrote, "arises from its failure to see that inaction can be every bit as abusive of power as action, that oppression can result when a State undertakes a vital duty and then ignores it."
