As University of Chicago Law School Professor Geoffrey Stone sees it, the Supreme Court issued its most aggressively activist decision in decades with the Citizens United case, which held unconstitutional the McCain-Feingold Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act. What does this tell us about the judicial philosophy of the current conservative majority on the Court and the future of American democracy? Professor Stone explores these questions in the 2011 DeWitt Higgs Memorial Lecture, presented by Earl Warren College and the Law and Society Program at UC San Diego and the California Western School of Law.
