Summary:
In recent years the judiciary has become an increasingly powerful policymaking body. Although judicial decisions are constrained by applicable constitutional law, statutory law, and precedent, the courts have considerable discretion in the way they interpret these laws, causing some people to question the judiciary's proper role in a democracy. This episode probes contemporary questions regarding the federal judiciary including the debate surrounding originalism, textualism, judicial review, and judicial activism.
