An Activist Judiciary vs. An Activist Jury with AZ Supreme Court Justice Clint Bolick

It can be frustrating looking for a “win” from the good guys. Far too often we look for big, obvious and life-changing circumstances, but sometimes the good guys do win — and Clint Bolick is one of those good guys you may or may not have heard about.

As the co-founder of the Institute for Justice, Clint knows a thing or two about going toe-to-toe with the government on every level. Now, Clint serves as an Associate Justice on the Arizona Supreme Court, where he has taken his passion for justice and liberty to a whole new level.

Clint is both a liberty warrior and a scholar, a thought leader *and* active leader in the field of law and order, and here’s what we’ll learn from him in this episode of Leading Liberty:

  • Whether judicial activism from the bench is what our Founding Fathers feared
  • What the “Gift Clause” is, and how the Arizona Constitution may be leading the way on some amazing state-level taxpayer protections
  • What’s really going on with the status of Civil Asset Forfeiture reform
  • Whether jury nullification is justified — and when it turns problematic

I could keep going, but this episode goes into all of that and so much more!

So listen, enjoy, learn, but don’t forget to leave the show a rating and review on iTunes if you haven’t already done that.

  1. Hi Jenn,

    I’m afraid I have to agree with Justice Bolick. If jurors are allowed to make law, it invites chaos. They are not going to agree with everything I do, since they are not me, so why would I think they would choose the way I would?. They don’t have the training, nor (my arrogance showing here) the intelligence to make decisions based on the greater good. They would make choices based on their own biases, or what they believe is best for them.

    As for wine…first find out if you like sweet or dry. Then figure out how sweet or dry you like. That will allow you to go into any liquor store, and at least ask where they have that type of wine. You can experiment from there. Also, don’t get pulled into the trap that all white wines are sweet, or all red wines are dry. I had the most fabulous sweet red wine in Rome. I wish I had written down the name…or grabbed the empty bottle. 🙂
