4.02 Judicial Review
Question 1: How is your role in government different from an elected official?
My role in government is different from n elected official because I am a federal circuit judge. I was not selected, as a judge, based on a political party. The president of the United States appoints myself and my fellow elected officials. ,y job is to interpret laws and ensure that there is fairness of law created by our Congress. My daily role as a judge is viewing evidence from cases and listening to petitioners court cases.
Question 2: How is it the same?
Just like members of Congress and the president, we exist in a government that serves the people. We are all striving to achieve the equality from the Constitution in our society.
Question 3: Do you think judges should elected? Explain why or why not.
I personally do not feel that judges should be elected. The jury and myself should be free of any additional pressure by the media to make our proper decision. If the legal system becomes broken, then their are additional ways to fix problems.
Question 4: What is judicial review?
Judicial review is the power of federal courts to review laws of Congress and acts of the executive branch in light of the Constitution, with the possibility that they rule them to be unconstitutional.
The Honorable Ramona Salvarez
~Federal circuit judge
~Appointed by a Democratic president
~Has been a judge for 19 years
~Divorced with two children
~Recent case- ruled that a music website charging automatic membership fees after a free trial violated consumer rights in multiple states. A group of citizens from one state brought a class action suit to the court against the music business, which is based in another state. The business maintains that the policy was agreed to at the time of signing up for the free trail, but the petitioners claim it was unclear and tiny.
Question 5: Please explain the role of judicial review in case you recently decided.
The role of judicial review in my case recently decided was ruled that a music website was charging membership fees after a free trail ended, which was violating the consumer rights in many states. A group of citizens from one state brought a class-action suit to court against the music website business, which is based in another state. The business maintains that the policy was agreed to at the time of signing up for the free trail; but the petitioners claim that it was too unclear and that the writing was tiny. I ruled out that the company should refund their customers and fix their terms within a 90 day period.
Question 6: Please explain how you arrived at your decision, including different factors that affected you.
In the end of the court case, I ruled that the company had violated the citizens rights because the contents of the contract were not clear enough. The public's comments and the company's response to customer complaints, helped me to reach my decision.
