The Wall Street Journal Editorial page has a great article on why activist judges are such a problem, as well as the tactics used, by judges, in legislating from the bench. The article is adapted from a book to be published this fall, and edited by, the controversial judge, Robert Bork. He is controversial in his opinion that judges should judge, and legislatures make laws. The proposal in this article of, "...restoring the 14th Amendment to its original meaning..." as a way to solve the problem of judicial activism is intriguing.
