Debunking “Judicial Tyranny”

One Comment

  1. Mr. Neily:

    Your post in intriguing and the premise feels sound: judges cannot (or often cannot) be tyrants because they can only bind those individuals before the Court. But you example of the Kansas City judge shows that one need not be a litigant before the court to be bound by it. Surely the citizens of Kansas City were not all in the court, but you admit they suffered from judicial tyranny by being forced to “lavish billions of dollars on the schools.”

    So judges can be tyrants, and perhaps in an even more insidious way, because one ruling to which I am not a member can indirectly force (or prevent) certain individual behavior.
