The liberal and conservative wings of the Court thus found common legal ground in this case.

The Supreme Court is to be applauded here for issuing a unanimous decision and voicing a clear standard that can be understood by all.
The Court relied in part for its decision on the reasoning found in a statement in Justice Scalia's dissent in Ours Garage, 536 U. S., at 449 (Scalia, J., dissenting), and notes in footnote 4 that:
"Although this statement appears in the Ours Garage dissent, nothing in the Court's opinion in that case is in any way inconsistent with the dissent's characterization of § 14501(c)(1)."This kind of legal "congruence" on the Supreme Court makes us optimistic as to the Court's future jurisprudential decision-making.
