[quote] if you are relying on creating rights and processes out of thin air to "correct" the document, you don't like it much [/quote] But that isn't what they are doing. The substantive DP argument is twofold. One is that the 14th Amendment incorporates the Bill of Rights to apply to the States, w...

[quote]Since I don't mean the same thing as SCOTUS when they say substantive due process[/quote] To be fair, neither did Holmes. He's talking about the use of the DP clause to strike down economic reforms (well, in Baldwin's case, tax policy). SCOTUS in the Lochner era used the 14th Am. not to prot...

re: Three 5-4 SCOTUS votes today. Lethal Injection, Redistricting and EPA decided. - Baloo
Congress does not have the authority to limit an Article III court's jurisdiction. So, no. They can't do that. It is why the issues of justiciability are so important to the Court, and why I rather like Roberts. He cares very deeply about those issues, and he limits the scope of SCOTUS decisions qui...

re: Can someone explain Amy Schumer to me? - Baloo
Kathleen Madigan rarely pushes "female issues" and she is one of the top comics working today. Neither does Tig Notaro, and she's revered amongst comedians (though her "overnight" success took 20 years and is tied to her amazing "cancer set"). Maria Bamford deals far more with mental issues because ...

Still skimming the decisions, but my general take on each: Gossip: I agree with Breyer in finding the death penalty to be absolutely appalling and a clear violation of the 8th Amendment. However, that issue was not before the Court. And if the death penalty is legal, there must be a legal way to ...

re: What's the worst Supreme Court ruling of all time? (Pre-2015) - Baloo
The Court didn't expand the definition: the LEGISLATURE did. That's the point, and why it was upheld. I realize the difference between the takings clause and the due process clause. I was just further pointing out that people were not deprived of property without due process of law. Nor was prop...

re: Does anyone on this board admire John Roberts? - Baloo
Thanks. It's why I only post, generally, on SCOTUS issues. I have my biases, but I at least try and defend the court's decisions, or at least show how they reached them. They don't just make stuff up on the fly. I'm sensitive to those criticisms, and I largely respect the work of the Court, even whe...

re: Does anyone on this board admire John Roberts? - Baloo
The Roberts court has already authored the two most expansive 2nd Amendment rulings in perhaps SCOTUS' entire history. DC v Heller found that the 2nd Am. was an individual right, entirely disconnected from the state militia. Handgun bans and requirements for trigger locks were also found to be un...
