Unfortunately, this is pretty par for the course, isn't it? Corporations get immunity from nearly everything these days, including taxes, so why should this be a surprise?

That article was pretty heavily biased. In some cases the quotes were chopped up to remove qualifying statments in order to make them sound more absolute.

However, not being a lawyer, its not an easy order to interpret. I'd like to hear an opinion from a real judge on what the implications are, rather than a lawer connected to a tabloid.

I tend to think my reading comprehension is pretty good, but I don't speak lawyerese. If anyone has any insight, I'd be more than willing to hear it.

It's declared as a "National Emergency", and from what little I can tell, it basically does what that lawyer in that article says it does, immunity from prosecution.
