Supreme Court Juries:
Scope of authority
Voting on cases: Majority rules, just like Supreme Court.
Appeals to Congress
Supreme Court Juries. Because the People are Supreme to the Government, and because NO CHECK on the power of the Judiciary currently exists, because neither the Executive nor the Congress have the balls to exert their lawful constitutional separation of powers and their federalism authority to require the Judiciary to live within the bounds of Article III, are happy to kow tow and kiss the judicial ring of obedience, have let the Judiciary “interpret” the constitution, and order whatever they want, thus becoming a government unto themselves, responsible only to — themselves. That is the definition of judicial tyranny.
How will they work?
*** Selecting the jurors. 9 jurors. No government employees. None. Not even military. no welfare. Other than that, minimum conditions should be necessary. High school graduates. Citizens should be chosen pretty much at random, except felons, non-citizens, and maybe some other categories. They shall not be subject to interrogation by the Supreme Court like regular jurors, they shall have all their powers explained thoroughly, they shall have briefings from both the Congress and the Executive, and shall have a neutral course in the Federalist and anti-Federalist Papers, and our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. A course in U.S, history and history of Supreme Court decisions should also be neutral in teaching, if that’s possible.
Question: How will they be selected, and by whom? Appointed, selected by the state legislatures from a pool of candidates recommended by, I’m not sure yet.
Jurors would serve one term, the same length as the Supreme Court session. Jurors should have accommodations to live during the week, for one year, in D.C. with flying home for weekends, all at government expense.
They are a check on the Court, court actions, written opinions, to reject any “judicial review” or “interpretation” of the Constitution. Anything beyond the specific delegated powers in Article III of the Constitution. They shall have the same power over Supreme Court decisions as the Supreme Court exercises over the rest of the government and the nation, until such time as Congresss restrains the Courts and judges and abolishes and bans Judicial Review.
Inspector General’s office of the Dept. of Justice administers the Supreme Court Jury program, Congress, Judiciary committee overseas.
Supreme Court Juries are to make sure the Supreme Court has jurisdiction to take a case per the Constitution, and they do not extend the case beyond those prescribed constitutional boundaries. eg: Roe v Wade
The jurors can not be agenda driven to reshape the court, for that would be as bad as the current Judiciary making up their powers as it is convenient.
Supreme Court Jurors can not be instructed, coerced, taught, briefed, or even communicate with the Justices or lawyers or parties of any case during the time the case is active before the Supreme Court.
Supreme Court Juries must observe all cases during a session, and all proceedings and arguments given in court, but must do the rest of their work in reviewing the opinions of the court, together, but in secret, and must render a verdict approving or denying, by no less than a 6 to 3 vote, all or any part of the opinion or decision of the Supreme Court, and the dissenting opinions, and rejecting any judicial orders, conditions, or any actions ordered by any Justice or the Supreme Court which exceed their Constitutional authority.
Congress shall change the amount of votes to render a decision of the court to no less than a 6 to 3 majority, in order for any verdict to stand. This 2/3 majority may have to be instituted by reducing the number of Supreme Court Justices to 6, and likewise the Supreme Court Jury as well, thus requiring a 4 to 2 vote to achieve any majority.
The Supreme Court Jury must operate from a separate building, and not be in contact with any other Supreme Court Justice, employee, nor anyone with a connection to the Supreme Court, nor media reporter, until all cases for that session are over.
If the Supreme Court, can not make the issues clear in their opinions, the Supreme Court Jury may inquire all they want AFTER the case has been decided and all opinions have been filed, until such time as all Jurors understand the issues and opinions rendered in the case. This will have the effect hopefully of shortening Court opinions, focusing them on the specific and most relevant issues, and writing them in plain language for anyone to understand.
Probably the most important function of the Supreme Court Jury is to stop judicial activism in any form, such as injunctions, orders, requirements, creating national policy, creating any policy, and anything that is in the constitutional delegated powers of the other branches of government. The Supreme Court Jury shall have the power to override as a check and balance, the decisions of any federal judge or court.
*** If a dispute continues and a judge or federal court, or the Supreme Court or their Justices, choose to appeal any decision of the Supreme Court Jury, it shall be the Congress that resolves the dispute by changing, modifying, creating or abolishing, through legislation, the laws, regulations, policies or other, that are at the heart of any unresolved conflict. At such time the judge or court would be free to appeal to Congress to redress their grievance. Should Congress fail to take the issue up, the verdict of the Supreme Court Jury stands.
This would only happen when a judge or court do not accept the verdict of the Supreme Court Jury, which they would have to fully justify, before any such issue was taken up by Congress.
The Supreme Court Jury, like the Supreme Court and inferior courts, do not have to hear or render a verdict on every case or every judicial action or event. They are free to select only those cases or judicial actions they find violate the separation of powers, invoke the unconstitutional practice of Judicial Review, have not gone through the State legislatures or State courts where they have jurisdiction, or the people through subordinate juries at the State and Local level where they have jurisdiction, or exceed the constitutionally delegated authority of any federal judge, justice, federal court, up to and including the Supreme Court, to act.
Congress per their authority to constitute courts inferior to the Supreme Court, shall consider this Supreme Court Jury as part of the Supreme Court, since juries are an integral part of most courts, and shall be determined to be a proper exercise of the Congresses legislative authority under the Constitution.
State legislatures shall have the same authority to constitute State Supreme Court juries, and other subordinate court juries, this law may be duplicated at the State and local level.
