    Americans no longer have faith in the US supreme court. That has justices worried

    The justices are vulnerable to public pressure in support of court reform. That’s why we must continue to push for change
    Thu 21 Oct 2021

    Our highest court is facing a legitimacy crisis and is in desperate need of reform. And yet, due to the deadlock that seems to be Congress these days, I too often hear the rebuke to US supreme court reform, “None of these reforms will happen, so what is the point of talking about them?”

    This defeatist argument fails to recognize a pivotal audience who surely hears the growing public calls for urgent reform – the supreme court itself.
    We need only look to the number of justices who have felt the need recently to speak up on behalf of the court, in an attempt to justify its egregious abuse of judicial norms and processes, to know the justices are listening.
    Historically, one of the most common features of supreme court justices is their public silence when away from the court. They generally let their decisions speak for themselves. No longer is that tenable as this court’s conservative supermajority insists on using its power to advance a partisan agenda at the expense of our constitutional rights and democratic legitimacy.
    Most recently, Justice Samuel Alito gave a speech at the University of Notre Dame that can only be described as an attempted takedown of the press. In his remarks, Justice Alito lambasted the work of journalists and even criticized the press for using the term “shadow docket”, a term coined by a conservative law professor. All Justice Alito succeeded in doing, however, is proving his sensitivity to the public discourse about the court.
    It’s not just justices who are attempting to justify the court’s break from judicial norms and disregard for constitutional rights. Senator Chuck Grassley, for instance, has even taken it upon himself to defend the court from what he perceives as bullying. His implication, however, that the court should be beyond reproach is to suggest the public ought to sit idly by while our rights are systematically dismantled for partisan gain.
    Justices, and politicians, can proclaim that the court is not political or that the public’s waning approval

    It works in cohorts with the executive where any action is taken to protect the “sanctity” of the judges. And it goes both ways; from the Ayodhya verdict to the Rafale case, Justice Gogoi’s tenure saw numerous favourable judgments for the government – perhaps to return government favors like surveilling someone illegally.

    Perhaps people are catching on to the scam that is judicial review and the incorporation doctrine.

    He said it was unrelated. Of course, it almost certainly isn't unrelated. But, you know, he said it was an aside.

    Maybe they should take the vote fraud cases to correct that.

    This wouldn't be a problem if we had a Supreme Court that actually stood for the people and believe in liberty.
