    I enjoyed reading the article, especially since I now have an explanation in strictly legal terms why the initial victim Kriemhild couldn’t possibly get off scot-free. I wish I had known that in elementary school when we went over the Niebelungen Lied; I would have a gotten much better marks.

    Maybe I misunderstood something, but it isn’t obvious to me why the judicial review standards of the Supreme Court are that much different from standards of the Bundesverfassungsgericht. Aren’t the mentioned four considerations roughly equivalent to the strict scrutiny standard that is mandatory for the more important cases? Can someone shed some light on this?
