The three worst Supreme Court opinions, so far
As we await the Supreme Court’s decision on the fate of the Affordable Health Care Act, I’d like to set the stage for how bad this opinion will be.
So that when we have a chance to analyze the thinking in the soon-to-be published decision, we can appreciate its radically infirm jurisprudence, I’d like us all to have a base line. So let’s first read the three worst decisions of the Supreme Court — so far.
- Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)
- Lochner vs. New York, 198 U.S. 45 (1905)
- Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000)
We can then compare the characteristics of what we’ve read to the upcoming opinion, to see exactly how much it shares with these paragons of bad judicial activity.
Stop back later this week or next to see!
