The Honorable Sam Robinson
The one thing that makes my role in government different is the fact that I am appointed to my position by an elected official, I am not elected by the people. When it comes to the law we as judges have to make decisions based on what the law says and not on the ideals of what the people want.
The branch of government that I serve is like the big brother we have the power to watch and rule over everybody. And by the same token they have the right to check on us which is how er create checks and balances.
Yes,I feel that Judges should not be elected. I feel that they should be held accountable for what they do. If judges were elceted they would have to pay ummage to too many special interest groups and ahve to worry about there popularity with the people.
Judicial review is the power of courts of law to review the actions of the executive and legislative branches.
Please explain the role of judicial review in a case you recently decided.
My latest case was a case where I was asked to review a state ordinance involving the law about the volume of music that was being played in a motor vehicle. After being cited by an officer for playing his music too loud the young man challenged the citation saying that it was unconstitutional, he felt his freedom of speech had been violated
Please explain how you arrived at your decision, including different factors that affected it.
One of the factors that i looked at was the music that you are listening to is for you to hear you should not subject people to have to listen to it. If you want to hear your music thats fine but you should keep it confined to your home or your vehicle which ever you choose.
