Alito Teases the Era of "You Can’t Make Us"

In an op-ed for Bloomberg Law, FTC’s Gabe Roth responds to Justice Alito’s July 28 interview with the Wall Street Journal, in which the justice said, “No provision in the Constitution gives [Congress] the authority to regulate the Supreme Court—period.”

Depressing as that sounds, it’s better to be clear-eyed about the prospects of a Court that’s even less accountable than it is now than look back with regrets in hindsight.
