Verbatim responses were mixed between those in support of the law, and the Supreme Court’s decision, and those who were totally against it. Some respondents indicated a difference between their personal choice and their choice as a representative of their company, and many readers commented about the decision-making process of the court. As always, verbatim responses reflect the opinions of individual readers and not the stance of Asset International or its affiliates.
