—On Tuesday, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg delivered a subtle but stinging public smackdown to the Court’s newcomer, Justice Neil Gorsuch, one that highlighted their differing interpretations of the U.S. Constitution.
At LawNews.com, Colin Kalmbacher wrote that the exchange happened during oral arguments in the Gill v. Whitford redistricting case which could potentially deal a lethal blow to partisan gerrymandering in U.S. congressional districts.
Ginsburg is what’s known as a Living Constitutionalist, i.e., a person who believes that the Constitution is a document that must evolve and change along with the people who live in the Democracy enshrined within it. This often places her at odds with rigid, conservative “Originalists” like Gorsuch and the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who adhere to a fundamentalist interpretation of the Constitution as it was written in 1787.
Attorney Paul M. Smith was asserting to the Court — at Ginsburg’s request — that it must take a proactive role is ending partisan gerrymandering, which has allowed some states to effectively institute one-party rule.—
