Response to Gothmog (Reply #13)

Wed Apr 29, 2020, 08:20 PM

22. Through the years, I have come to a reasonable working definition of judicial activism.

Judicial activism: A judicial decision with which one disagrees.

The problem with my definition is that it works both ways. When SCOTUS issues an opinion with which I disagree (i.e. most SCOTUS opinions), I don't decry judicial activism. Instead I decry yet another blow to justice, the rule of law, or simple decency.
