I guess it would be asking too much for you to explain?
I'm not sure what Brandon is getting at, since he has insights I don't have. That said, I'd wander off the reservation and not immediately look to statute. I would instead look at things that 'substantially burden' a fundamental right.
Then there is the question of performance of ministerial duties and whether those duties are performed appropriately. I haven't really thought that one out deeply, but it might make for an interesting private cause of action.
