The Constitution denies to Congress the right to create titles of nobility or to allow any citizen the right to a foreign title of nobility. Yet, perhaps to gain the respect due their calling, judges, unlike any other office holders, are permitted to adorn themselves with black robes and conduct their trials in court houses of stately grandeur. These judges are indeed of a different pattern then other public servants. These judges are looked upon in virtual reverence and their judgments are added to those great volumes of decisions that make up our legal if not moral heritage. But what would be the consequences to our ordered society if judges found not the constraints of an ordered rule of law, but found instead that they had instead the ability to and passion to formulate the law without reference to peoples will? Such jurists could with such power become tyrants of an entirely different order.

About the Author:

I received my J.D. degree from Gonzaga University in 1962 and was admitted to the Washington State Bar, the Federal District Bar for Western Washington and was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. I engaged in the private practice of law for thirty years in the field of Administrative and Regulatory Law. I served for four Years as an Administrative Law Judge with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. I served for twelve years on the Redmond, Washington City Council, four years as its President. I obtained my pre-law Credits from the University of Idaho, Washington State University and Gonzaga University where I studied philosophy, history and economics. I got my pre-law credits and my law degree (J.D.) while working full time and providing for the sole support for my wife Betty (of sixty two years) and four children. I now have dual residences in Washington and Arizona. I have authored three other books. One is a historical adventure-romance novel entitled STEPTOE-The Victors and the Vanquished on the Trail to Oregon. The novel depicts the dramatic period of the administration of President Polk who expanded America’s boundaries from the Mississippi to the Pacific. FROM THE GREAT DEPRESSION TO THE GREAT RECESSION; Eighty Years of Democrats, Democracy and Deceit is an autobiographical sketch of what life was like growing up in rural, small town America during the Great Depression, World War II and the regional conflicts that followed in Korea and Viet Nam. The third book; Obamanomics and the New Social Order, Nation Building on a Chard Card deals with the recent recession, its causes and its consequences. All of these books are available on Amazon.

Book Description Xlibris. Paperback. Condition: New. 164 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.The federal courts were, as stated by Hamilton, intended to be the least intrusive of the three branches of government; that is because the federal courts were neither intended to make laws nor were they intended to enforce or to execute those laws. Each of those functions was reserved for the other two branches of government, branches that were representative of the peoples will. The federal courts are not representative organs of government, the judges are appointed and once appointed are independent of and immune from the popular will. Unlike the executive and legislative branches of government, their tenure is for life and they need never (except for impeachable offences) concern themselves with the consequences of the ballot box nor do they need public conformation of their official conduct. There function is to try all cases in law or equity that affects the interests of the United States arising under the constitution or the acts of congress. They are essentially arbitrators who are assumed to independently and without bias weigh the facts presented before them and render decisions that become the law of the case. These judges bare a tremendous weight of responsibility, not only because of their case by case determination, but because they are called upon to conform their determinations to the rule of law, giving to each litigant the assurance of equal treatment under the law. Federal judges are also called upon at times to determine the constitutionality of the laws enacted by congress. This item ships from multiple locations.
