Clint Bolick

David's hammer: the case for an activist judiciary. Carolina Academic Press, c2007

KF250.G353 2007

 

Judicial activism is condemned by both right and left, for good reason--lawless courts are a threat to republican government. However, constitutional litigator Clint Bolick argues that it is far worse for a judiciary to allow the other branches of government to run roughshod over precious liberties. For better or worse, only a vigorous judiciary can enforce the limits on executive and legislative actions, protect constitutional rights, and tame unelected bureaucrats. David's Hammer reclaims for the judiciary its intended role as the ultimate safeguard of a free society.

 

William L. Dwyer

Ipse dixit : how the world looks to a federal judge. University of Washington Press, c2007

KF8775.D89 2007

 

During William L. Dwyer's fifteen-year tenure as a U.S. District Court judge, he presided over many groundbreaking cases and controversial rulings. Before his appointment to the district court in 1987, Dwyer had spent more than thirty years as a trial lawyer, never shying away from the most difficult cases. The fifteen speeches in this volume cover a span from 1978 to 2002 and reveal the breadth and scope of Dwyer's legal wisdom. The volume also includes several speeches that express Dwyer's hopes for the American legal system. “If we use our heads,” Dwyer avers, “we have the collective ability to survive and to let the rest of life survive with us.”
