"Every case that comes before the U.S. Supreme Court has its unique factual setting and contentious legal issues, but in a large percentage of them, the decision ultimately comes down to this: Should the Court defer to the legislative and executive branches and thereby allow democracy to work, or should it overrule what they have done if their handiwork violates the Constitution? With all the furor over facts and holdings in individual cases, people are apt to miss the bigger picture -- the different judicial philosophies that shape judges' views. The clash of those philosophies is the subject of an excellent book by Damon Root, Overruled: The Long War for Control of the U.S. Supreme Court." (08/17/16)
