Sunday, March 17, 2019

At the Federalist Society Student Symposium this weekend, Arizona State Supreme Court Justice Clint Bolick recalled the 1984 debate between then-judge Antonin Scalia and Professor Richard Epstein over whether the federal judiciary should take a more active role in protecting economic liberty. Professor Epstein, as one might expect, argued in the affirmative. Then-judge Scalia (who would be elevated to the Supreme Court soon thereafter) urged greater restraint, suggesting it would be dangerous to unleash federal judges in this way.

The Real March Madness: Progressives Want To Pack The Supreme Court

by David Davenportvia Washington Examiner
Friday, March 15, 2019

While the country gears up for college basketball’s March Madness, progressives already have their own season of silliness in full swing. The latest is a proposal to let the president (only when Democrats retake the White House, of course) add and fill additional seats on the Supreme Court. Former Attorney General Eric Holder likes the idea (let’s add two, he says), as does Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and several progressive groups.
