The rule did not attempt to show that the Judge is a higher power than 
Verisign, merely that the Judge is a higher power than Congress and the 
US Army.

None of the Rules so far in this round require transitivity. The mere 
fact that Congress indirectly is a higher power than the Judge does not 
prevent the Judge from directly being a higher power than Congress.

Please reconsider the judgment.
