Law’s Jonathan Adler shares probability of laws to be overturned by the Supreme Court

The restrained Roberts court

The National ReviewJonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and director of the Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law, noted the flawed logic in the argument that the current Supreme Court is more likely to overturn precedent and invalidate laws than we have come to expect. “Based on available metrics, the current court is less likely than its predecessors to overturn precedents or invalidate legislative enactments,” Adler opined. “If such actions are the hallmark of judicial imperialism, the Roberts Court is not particularly imperialist.”
