The Selling Out of Our Democracy

Supreme Court to Kids: Resume Fire (Update)

Souter’s Challenge to Scalia

It should become the philosophical shot heard ’round the country. In a remarkable speech that received far too little attention, former Supreme Court Justice David Souter took direct aim at the conservatives’ favorite theory of judging.

SCOTUS Ponders Dog-Fighting Videos, ‘Human Sacrifice Channel’

Sometimes when making a legal argument, it’s useful to go to hyperbolic extremes to illustrate the ideological flaws or possible outcomes associated with a potential ruling, which is why the conversation in the United States Supreme Court on Tuesday ranged from dog-fighting videos to a (hypothetical) cable channel for human sacrifice enthusiasts.

Keeping the Supreme Court in Check

Neither McCain nor Obama would alter the prevailing jurisprudence in the Supreme Court or in subordinate tribunals. The unfortunate result will be a judiciary that is deferential to presidential powers and law enforcement in the name of fighting international terrorism.

Unmaking History

It’s time for those of us who are old enough to remember when the U.S. Supreme Court was a major force for racial integration and justice to stop living in the past. We need to realize that, for the foreseeable future, any progress our increasingly diverse country makes toward fairness and equality will come in spite of the nation’s highest court, not because of it.

Scalia to the Environment: Drop Dead!

Scalia Dismisses ‘Living Constitution’

The Supreme Court justice drives home his misguided belief that changes in society’s mores shouldn’t be reflected in the Constitution. Sure: the Founding Fathers got it all right 200 years ago—including the bit about counting Americans of African descent as three-fifths of a person.
