With such strong support for originalism, you would think schools and the bar would be training attorneys to argue their cases from this interpretation, right? Wrong!
This Constitution Day, let's take a moment to celebrate originalism! Through its respect for the original meaning of our founding document, this approach upholds the rule of law, preserves popular sovereignty, secures individual liberties, and promotes stability in our legal system.
One hundred years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the 14th Amendment’s Due Process Clause protects parental rights. This holding is tricky.
We should be grateful that originalism is working not only in Washington, D.C. but right here in Montgomery as well.
