Black-robed tyrants

“Judges ought to remember that their office is Ius dicere, and not Ius dare; to interpret law, and not to make law, or give law.” – Francis Bacon, “Of Judicature”, 1625

“I have always thought, from my earliest youth till now, that the greatest scourge an angry Heaven ever inflicted upon an ungrateful and sinning people was an ignorant, a corrupt, or a dependent judiciary.” Chief Justice John Marshall, Debates of the Virginia Constitutional Convention, 1829-31
