It’s a waste of time to spend “decades, years, months…or even seconds” studying the Constitution.
So says a law professor & Federal Appeals Circuit Court Judge.
While he swore to uphold the law, he believes the court should “create a common law of constitutional law, based on current concerns, not what those 18th century guys were worrying about.”
This is the philosophy of the current Supreme Court as evidenced by recent decisions including today’s decision on abortion law in Texas.
A Reagan-appointed judge violated his oath to the Constitution and became the deciding vote.
