An Imperial Supreme Court Asserts It Power

From a New York Times story by Adam Liptak headlined “An ‘Imperial Supreme Court’ Asserts It Power, Alarming Scholars”:

The conventional critique of the Supreme Court these days is that it has lurched to the right and is out of step with the public on many issues. That is true so far as it goes.

But a burst of recent legal scholarship makes a deeper point, saying the current court is distinctive in a different way: It has rapidly been accumulating power at the expense of every other part of the government.
