The decision is for the Proposition: Jared Sul
Reason for Decision:
I think the time limits are an issue, and I consider it closely. In the end, the opposition needed to give me more of a reason for why it's an automatic disqualification rather than justifying the opposition also going over. In terms of the merits of the argument, the opposition doesn't answer the proposition's argument that it wouldn't apply to good systems, only the UN can compel the US, and criminal justice is a human rights issue.
