Christy Brzonkala will not have her day in FEDERAL court.
The former Virginia Tech student had hoped hers would be a test case... a test of a new federal law, called the Violence Against Women Act.
SS=Legal Scales

But the chief judge of federal court in Roanoke decided Congress over-stepped its authority, so the judge has declared the law UN-constitutional.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=@file


Brzonkala says she was raped by two Tech football players... not some "random act of violence," her attorney claimed, but an event "wholly motivated" by discrimination against women.
Linebacker Tony Morrison allegedly later made a statement that the judge today paraphrased by saying Morrison "has a history of taking pleasure from having intercourse with women without their sober consent."
Kiser recognizes: "violence against women is a pervasive and troublesome aspect of American life which needs thoughtful attention. But," the judge concluded, "Congress is not invested with the authority to cure all of the ills of mankind."
Bottom line?: "Case dismissed."
