Faculty Quotable

The constitution states that courts are the only branch of government with the power to decide cases between opposing parties. Congress can't do that and neither can the president. Yet Congress has passed laws forcing justices to recuse themselves in certain circumstances. By forcing justices to recuse themselves, Congress could end up removing enough justices from a case that the Court is unable to decide that case. In other words, laws passed by Congress about Supreme Court recusal are unconstitutional.

Professor Louis Virelli, author of Disqualifying the High Court, explains why judicial recusal is unconstitutional.
