In two recent blogs, I have shed light on the impacts of recent Supreme Court rulings. One of the more intriguing justices over the past couple of years, given his rulings and his background, has been Chief Justice John Roberts.
A recent op-ed in the New York Times by Linda Greenhouse gives some really good insight into some of Chief Justice Roberts’s recent rulings and what they say about him as a jurist and a man. She analyzes Chief Justice Roberts’s rulings and thoughts on cases as varied as the Defense of Marriage Act ruling, the Affordable Care Act ruling and others.
After some really good analysis (and not a little conjecture), Ms. Greenhouse boils down the Chief Justice’s overall mindset as, “Congress can’t be trusted. The executive branch is out of control. What’s left? The Supreme Court.”
