Looks like I have a new to-do project-αmεσ (!) 20:55, 13 September 2007 (MDT)

Knock yourself out, my snarky stub was to get rrid of some red links. Hopefully I at least got what little I said right. This article requires mention of "activist judges", though! Oh, and those strict constructionalist fools, and original intent... but you know what you're talking about. Glad you found it! humanbe in 21:14, 13 September 2007 (MDT)

Current bench[edit]

Shouldn't we just list all nine, perhaps with dates of confirmation, and a bit of snark about each one? ħumanUser talk:Human 01:07, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Done and done. Lyra § talk 04:38, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you and excellent! ħumanUser talk:Human 05:15, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Maybe a bit more snark ? ... smidge ? ArtifexMayhem (talk) 03:48, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
By all means. Lyra § talk 03:58, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Judicial review[edit]

As I understand it, although the concept of judicial review was not new at the time, Marbury was the first time the U.S. Supreme Court used it to declare a federal law unconstitutional. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 05:02, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
