Should The American Judges Association Speak Up About The Erosion Of Judicial Independence In the United States?

If there is anything that binds judges in solidarity, the issue of judicial independence may well be at the top of the list. And so when you see that immigration judges filed a formal grievance against the attorney general, one might expect that quite a few judges would (or should) become concerned.

The formal grievance against Attorney General Sessions claims he is trying to influence the results of cases before a Philadelphia-based judge whom Trump officials say is not processing cases quickly enough. The Justice Department says, in response, that the judge, Steven Morley, is himself under investigation for possible violations of “processes and practices.” See articles from USA Today and CNN.
