    Even as the Court has moved in a more textualist direction consistent with its constitutional role and the rule of law, much mischief remains, often in the form of U.S. Supreme Court jurisprudence that judges like me are bound to implement. Examples abound, but one that my colleagues and I had to confront in a recent case was especially vexing. The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which.

      Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, currently the Supreme Court's leading liberal voice, embraces the idea of a "living Constitution," a notion disdained by originalists as too flexible.

While the book contains sections marked "In My Opinion," which the author gives the reader permission to skip, the reader finds the author's take on various Supreme Court decisions throughout the text.

In fact, the book is as much an argument for strict constructionism as it is a comprehensive review of the Constitution/5(78). For example, on the campaign trail inwhen speaking on his choices for new Supreme Court Justices, George W.

Introduction. By exercising its power to determine whether federal and state government actions are constitutional, 1 the Supreme Court has developed a large body of judicial decisions, or "precedents," interpreting the Constitution. 2 Rules and principles established in prior cases inform the Court's future decisions.

Supreme Court has held that race-based affirmative action in higher education and government contracting must be reviewed under strict scrutiny. In the U.S., strict scrutiny is a form of judicial review that requires a law, policy, or program to serve a compelling state interest and be narrowly tailored to address that interest.

Remembering Antonin Scalia Last Saturday, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away. Scalia was known for his incisive legal opinions, penetrating questions during hearings, and his embrace of originalism in interpreting the law.

Originalism is a legal philosophy that holds judges should interpret the Constitution and Bill of Rights by determining what its language [ ]. A century-old Supreme Court decision provides significant guidance.

Induring a smallpox outbreak, the court decided Jacobson v. Massachusetts, a constitutional challenge to Massachusetts. The book might almost be called a textbook for future judges, or a guideline for future presidents how (not) to choose judges for the Supreme Court.

At the same time Rosen manages to 'humanize' the judges and to show some of the struggles a judge might have to face in order to arrive at a decision that is as impartial as s:. The central issue here is that the judiciary in general and the Supreme Court specifically is not charged in our Constitution to make law nor to correct law.
