Judges Need to Focus on Interpreting Constitution


Thursday, Sep. 18, 2008


In recent years, U.S. judges have leaned toward “abstract moralizing” at the expense of their real job, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a crowd at Utah State University this week. “I’m questioning the sanity of having value-laden decisions being made by unelected judges," he said. "Nothing I learned at Harvard or in my practice of law qualifies me to decide whether there is a right to abortion or to assisted suicide."
