For Dr. Scott

Question:

REply to this

Define judicial review.

Is the review of the US Supreme court of the consitiutional validity of a legislative act. The principle by which courts can declare acts of either the executive or the legislative branch.

Define judicial activism and judicial restraint.

Judicial activism refers to the ruling suspected of being personal or political considerations rather than on existing laws. Judicial activism is the views that judges can and should create. The constitution has its own laws that served the judges personal visions regarding the needs of the contemporary society. Judicial restraint is a theory of judicial interpretation that encourages judges to limit their powers. Judges should hesitate to strike down laws unless they are obviously unconstitutional.

Provide one recent example of judicial review by the Supreme Court and explain if the reviews are considered examples of judicial restraint or judicial activism and why.

One recent example of judicial review by the Supreme Court is same sex marriage. I do believe that the reviews are considered examples of judicial restraint. Why? Because there are some judges who aren’t for same sex marriage then again there are some who’s for it. Me personally don’t think feel that its a crime to marry a person of the same sex everyone wants happiness
