in Law, Legal Issues

… is from page 2 of Clint Bolick’s essay “The Role of the Judiciary,” which is featured in the Spring 2018 Cato’s Letter:

The judiciary is called upon to be very robust and aggressive in striking down laws that are contrary to the Constitution, while at the same time, it is supposed to be very constrained with regard to the separation of powers. I call the first half of that equation “judicial activism” – in other words, a judiciary that is active in holding the other two branches of government to their limited and defined powers and in upholding the rights of the people.
