Abstract

This microsymposium contribution responds to Suzanna Sherry's paper "Why We Need More Judicial Activism" and offers a heuristic -- what I call libertarian activism -- for distinguishing activism that reduces governmental power from activism that enhances governmental power.

Keywords: judicial activism, Sherry, micro-symposium, microsymposium, Green Bag
