U. S. Constitution Gives No Authority for Judicial Review
Despite the fact that the Supreme Court’s current case-load consists almost exclusively of judicial review cases, the Constitution gives the courts no authority to take such action. The courts assume this power based on a 1794 Supreme Court ruling which first declared a law unconstitutional. The power of judicial review is a serious conflict of interest issue, giving the federal government the power to judge the constitutionality of its own laws. It also gives an unintended amount of power to the judicial branch of the U.S. government, which was originally meant to be the weakest branch of the federal government.
The most worrying is that after a Supreme Court decision there is really no recourse, it’s decision is final. You can not elect a new SCOTUS and change things as you can with the legislature and President. Constitutionality Crisis has an excellent write up detailing the problems with judicial review.
