The way that I see judicial activism is that it’s the court’s rulings, and based on the judges own personal or political views. The existing laws don’t matter in this case because the judges get to decide what they want to do.
While I was doing some research one of the cases that came up was the Brown vs. Board of Education, this was the case where a group of parents filed a lawsuit for their children against the city of Topeka Kansas. They did this because they felt it was not right or constitutional witht the segregation of black and white kids. When looking at the case, the courts didn’t look at the existing laws when it came to making their decision, rather they used their own personal and social ideas. I am greatful that this happened the way it did because if not I wouldn’t pf been able to go to school with some of my friends, this case stemed from the Plessy v. Ferguson case. Another case that came up was the Roe v. Wade, in this case the courts were in favor of abortions being legal in many circumstances. The laws in Texas were that they were completely illegal unless if it was to save the life of the mother. The courts believed it violated the privacy of a woman, again this is them not following the law, but instead creating a new one.
Over time Juducial Activism has been usedn to solve more and more cases. I personally believe it has done more good than bad. I believe so because if you look at all of the cases in the end for the most part it has benefited the people. It has given us more opportunities to make our own choices. Yes our forefathers made certain laws, but over time things and people change, and we need to keep with these changes. To my understanding the courts are allowed to use Judicial Activism because a lot of times judges know whats best for the public depending on certain circumstances, rather than following existing laws.
