Supreme Court: Justices overstepping on McCleary

The nine state Supreme Court justices are overstepping the boundaries of our democratic form of government, when they usurp the powers of the Legislature, under the pretense of enforcing the McCleary decision [“State Supreme Court should be cautious in McCleary school-funding case,” Opinion, Aug. 30].

The 147 elected legislative members answer directly to the electorate and their decisions involve hearings, public meetings, research, testimony by interested and effective parties, and consequences.

The question is: When these nine members of the court take on the duties of the Legislature, who will perform the duties of the Supreme Court?
