The Judicial Branch

What are benefits and liabilities from the practice of judicial activism? (Begin with a definition of what constitutes judicial activism as opposed to judicial restraint. Search the Web for an article examining a recent Court decision to support your assessment of activism.)

Include in your discussion,

Whether or not the current Court practices judicial activism systematically

Constitutional appropriateness of decisions rendered by the Court

Resistances to the decisions of the Court

Trend of the Court in the matter of activism or restraint

Remember the role of separation of powers and the obligation toward exercising checks and balances with the other two Branches
