4. The judge should be impeached

He's "interpreting" law and precedent like an 8th grader with paper-thin reasoning abilities rather than an experienced jurist.

He's saying that the law itself has to state that private citizens can sue. He's saying that that since the statute doesn't explicitly say this, only the attorney general may sue/enforce.

It is ridiculous to say that every statute passed by congress must include a list of all groups or entities who have standing to sue or seek a remedy/enforcement.

Well, lets beat the courts at their own game. If Dems keep the Senate and Whitehouse and can take the house next fall, we must amend the law to confer standing to any class necessary to enforce the Act.

Dems should be keeping a list of all such revisions needed on any law, and pre-write the drafts now. Then, when and if we can keep control of these branches, whip them out of our back pocket and ram-rod these through within the first few months. That's what Repubs did when Roe fell.
