National Constitution Center president and CEO Jeffrey Rosen moderated the annual Harvard Marshall Forum on Friday with two special guests: Supreme Court associate justices Stephen Breyer and Neil Gorsuch.
Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch acknowledged Friday that there is "a lot of skepticism about the rule of law" in the country but defended the United States judicial system as "a blessing" and "a remarkable gift" during a talk at Harvard University.
With legal challenges to the Trump administration’s initiatives multiplying in federal courts, new Supreme Court Justice Neil M. Gorsuch extolled the virtues of judicial independence and praised a legal system in which “government can lose in its own courts” Friday night.
Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, in his first public remarks since joining the Supreme Court in April, spoke forcefully on Friday about letting judges have the last word in assessing the constitutionality of government actions.
In The Atlantic, Jeffrey Rosen explains how nothing in the 25th amendment stops the vice president, Cabinet, and Congress from determining the president is “unable" to hold office, as a political decision.
“By comparing the texts of early drafts of the Constitution, in the American Treasures gallery…visitors can educate themselves about the evolution of American liberty and the emergence of popular sovereignty,” said Jeffrey Rosen
