Casey decision must be overturned, legal scholar argues
June 29, 2012
On the 20th anniversary of the US Supreme Court’s decision in the Planned Parenthood v. Casey case, Michael Stokes Paulsen makes the argument that the Casey decision is “the most reprehensible act of judicial betrayal of the Constitution, of judicial duty, and of judicial morality, in our nation’s history.” Writing at a time when Americans have their eyes on another controversial Supreme Court decision, Paulsen says that the integrity of the Court cannot be restored until the damage done by Casey is repaired. “Just as Lincoln denounced Dred Scott and declared that it could not bind the nation, Casey must denounced and declared not to be binding law.”
