For Someone Who Proclaims He Used to Teach Constitutional Law, He Sure Does Not Know A Lot ABout Or Anything About the Constitution
Judicial activism is when courts do not confine themselves to reasonable interpretations of laws, but instead create law. Alternatively, judicial activism is when courts do not limit their ruling to the dispute before them, but instead establish a new rule to apply broadly to issues not presented in the specific action. “Judicial activism” is when judges substitute their own political opinions for the applicable law, or when judges act like a legislature (legislating from the bench) rather than like a traditional court. In so doing, the court takes for itself the powers of Congress, rather than limiting itself to the powers traditionally given to the judiciary.
Hey Obama, it’s not judicial activism when the Supreme Court shoots down your ridiculous unconstitutional law…it’s called upholding the rule of law and the CONSTITUTION, you idiot
