"The Least Dangerous Branch?"
The State of the American
Report by Betty Sakai
Known for suing government bureaucrats on behalf of citizens, Arizona Supreme Court Justice Clint Bolick discussed the Judiciary and what attracted him to a career as a lawyer. Law he said is the ultimate level playing field. No matter how much money and power you have, when you get to court you get the same opportunity to present your case as the other side. He has worked on issues of school choice, government regulations, and property rights. Discussing the direction the Judiciary may take, he encouraged everyone to remain engaged in the debate both here in California and at the national level. Silicon Valley --of all places in earnest -- should be the epicenter of freedom. No place on earth has prospered more from the freedom provided them. Justice Bolick thanked the Conservative Forum and commended members for their involvement in this organization, hoping they will continue to spread the philosophy of freedom. The President, the Senate, and the court of public opinion, he said, are all involved in the debate over the role of the Judiciary and can be influenced as to the direction this turns out.
