Elena Kagan’s Blind Love Of The Expertocracy: SCOTUS Slaps The EPA

During my first year in law school, we learned about legal sources and what place jurisprudence had in the legal pyramid. After some discussion, we thought it would be better if judges made law proactively as this would take care of bad laws. How naive I was. Our professor, an old legal professional tampered with our enthusiasm and explained why court-ruled societies are a bad idea. Judges have a mission to fill in blanks. They have no mission in creating what has not been intended in the first place by the legislature. However imperfect that might have been. The current SCOTUS dials back to where courts belong.
