Brian Leiter on Constitutional Law, Moral Judgment, and the Supreme Court as Super-Legislature(Leiter論憲法,道德判斷以及作為超級立法者的聯邦最高法院)

Brian Leiter在SSRN上面發表了一篇文章:Constitutional Law, Moral Judgment, and the Supreme Court as Super-Legislature, 這是Leiter在2015年1月12日的演講稿,內文第一頁說明了他要討論的三個重點:1. 在聯邦憲法中,幾乎沒有「真正的」法律。2. 因此,由於欠缺法律(very little “actual” law),這使得法官的道德與政治判斷成為法院權力運作的關鍵點。3. 所有的政治行動者都知道聯邦法院像個超級立法者,因此法官的道德與政治觀點是提名的決定性因素!Leiter寫這類議題,無疑地會很吸引人。推薦閱讀!!
