Overruling the Supreme Court: “Constitutional Resistance”


Legal scholars and university professors, led by Robert P. George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University, along with the American Principles Project, are leading a “Constitutional Resistance” movement.

As such, they urge every federal and state judicial office holder, civil magistrate and government employee to reject the Supreme Court’s unconstitutional ruling on Obergefell v. Hodges. As well as encouraging others to join them in refusing “to accept Obergefell as binding precedent for all but the specific plaintiffs in that case.”

They declared in a joint statement:

“We have great respect for judges. We have even greater respect for law. When judges behave lawlessly, it is the law that must be honored, not lawless judges.

“The Supreme Court is supreme in the federal judicial system. But the justices are not supreme over the other branches of government. And they are certainly not supreme over the Constitution.”

These scholars emphasize the foundation to American jurisprudence rests in the supremacy of the U.S. Constitution, and also in the separation of, and a balance of power among the three branches of government. And, the Supreme Court is only part of one of these three branches.

The Supreme Court holds no final word on any legal matter. Its opinion can be overturned.
