Judicial Activism: Reclaiming the Judiciary from 'Politicians in Robes'

Still, it likely will take years to fully evaluate whether Mr. Trump truly transformed the 9th Circuit, said Curt Levey, president of the Committee of Justice, which promotes constitutionalist positions on legal and policy issues. He noted that most senior Republican-appointed judges aren’t as conservative as Mr. Trump’s picks because senators used to be able to block federal appeals court nominees.

The judges, as well as the California attorney general, are legitimate candidates for the high court, said Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, a conservative legal group. Otherwise, he said, it’s largely just a wish list.

While he thinks Justice Kavanaugh could uphold some limitations on abortion, Mr. Levey is doubtful the newest justice would be a solid vote to overturn outright Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark ruling legalizing abortion nationwide.

Levey said Whitehouse’s brief [in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York] was “an overt threat and it is coming from a fairly radical group of Democratic senators who hate the fact that the Supreme Court is center-right at the moment.”

Curt Levey, president of the conservative Committee for Justice, doesn't go that far, but he said the census decision means that "having a conservative majority on the court is still a dream rather than a reality."

“Conservatives shouldn’t be dreaming of a revolutionary court that will overturn Roe, and on the flip slide liberals really have no right to be speaking about this arch-conservative majority that has to be restrained,” Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, said, referring to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion...

In a repeat performance of his infamous 2012 decision rescuing ObamaCare, Chief Justice John Roberts acutely disappointed conservatives Thursday by siding with the Supreme Court's liberal Justices in second-guessing the reasons for adding a citizenship question to the census and all but killing the question, given the looming deadline for printing census forms.

In a repeat performance of his infamous 2012 decision rescuing ObamaCare, Chief Justice John Roberts acutely disappointed conservatives Thursday by siding with the Supreme Court's liberal Justices in second-guessing the reasons for adding a citizenship question to the census and all but killing the question, given the looming deadline for printing census forms.

“Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives today — to a degree not seen since he saved Obamacare in 2012 — when he sided with the court’s four liberals to second-guess the Trump administration’s reasons for adding a citizenship question to the census,” Curt Levey, the president of the Committee for Justice, a conservative activist group, said in a statement. “The census decision will surely deepen the impression that Roberts is the new Justice Kennedy, rather than the reliable fifth conservative vote that liberals feared and conservatives hoped for.”

“He may in his heart think he’s a conservative, but he’s not going to be what conservatives want and liberals fear. … With each passing year — maybe this doesn’t happen every year, but we’ve seen enough of it, we kind of have to accept he’s roughly another Kennedy,” Levey said, referring to Justice Anthony Kennedy, the Reagan appointee who dismayed conservatives by upholding abortion rights and leading the court to declare a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

“Whatever Roberts’ motives might be … the census decision will surely deepen the impression that Roberts is the new Justice Kennedy, rather than the reliable fifth conservative vote that liberals feared and conservatives hoped for,” Curt Levey of the conservative Committee for Justice said. “Roberts disappointed conservatives today—to a degree not seen since he saved ObamaCare in 2012.”

Chief Justice John Roberts is catching sharp criticism for the SCOTUS decision over the 2020 Census citizenship question. As Tony Mauro reports, conservatives are offended, saying that he second-guessed the Trump administration’s reasoning for including the question. Roberts and the four liberal justices determined that the rationale behind the action was “contrived.” Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, has called for impeaching Roberts, while Curt Levey of the conservative Committee for Justice says that Roberts “disappointed conservatives” in the decision “to a degree not seen since he saved ObamaCare in 2012.

It is for good reason that most supporters of D.C. voting rights realize they will need an amendment — similar to the one that gave D.C. three electoral votes.

June 16, 2019

The focus on Roberts is unsurprising, said Curt A. Levey of the conservative Committee for Justice. Although the jury is still out on Trump appointee Brett M. Kavanaugh, the justice who replaced Kennedy, Roberts is the conservative most likely to be in play, Levey said. “I think it is a predicament for him,” Levey said. The chief justice is the member of the court most sensitive “to what history and the nightly news says about you.”

June 12, 2019

In an op-ed for Fox News, Curt Levey suggests that progressives may be “aggressively pushing restructuring schemes” for the Supreme Court in order to motivate Chief Justice John Roberts “to distance himself from the Supreme Court’s conservative bloc in an attempt to alleviate the pressure coming from the left.”
