Book Review

Continued from page 9

Biskupic hypothesizes that this nonpartisan desire is probably why Roberts
went out of his way to make sure that the
ACA, also known as "Obamacare," was
not declared unconstitutional by a 5-4
vote of Republican-appointed justices
over Democrat-appointed justices.
Biskupic summarizes the future of
the Roberts Court as follows:
In some areas, likely not involving
race or religion, Roberts may hold in
check his usual ideological instincts.
He may find his way, as he did in
2012, to something resembling a
middle ground. Or Roberts might
choose to retreat to the patterns seen
in 2018, when he appeared resistant
to compromise. The man who is
only the seventeenth chief justice of
the United States is likely still in the
early chapters of his tenure. When
Justice Anthony Kennedy retired
in 2018, Roberts gained greater
control, no longer yoked to a centrist
conservative pulling to the left. . . ..
The chief justice is leading a Court
increasingly in his own image. He is
positioned at the center in every way,
and the law will likely be what he
says it is.
The Chief is an excellent way to learn
about the background, inclinations,
and evolution of Chief Justice Roberts
and to understand prior decisions while
speculating about future ones.

Young Lawyers Complete
"May Month of Service"

T

he Young Lawyers Section once again completed a successful "May
Month of Service." The month began with the YLS manning a table at
the Hatboro-Horsham "When I Grow Up" Career Expo. Young lawyers
spoke to school students about career opportunities in the legal field and, more
importantly, handed out candy.
On May 4, 2019, YLS members teamed up with the Family Law Section to
clean up around the courthouse in Norristown. YLS Treasurer Patrice Turenne
arranged the event in coordination with the program Keep Norristown Beautiful.
Volunteers spent the morning picking up trash on the streets and sidewalks of
Norristown.
The following week YLS members volunteered at the Mattie Dixon
Community Cupboard in Ambler. They helped unload and sort over 2,700 lbs. of
food that was collected as part of the Ambler Post Office Drive.
The month concluded with a YLS team delivering food for meals on wheels.
The YLS has adopted a delivery route through the Senior Adult Activities
Center (SAAC) of Montgomery County. On the last Friday of each month, YLS
members delivered meals to seniors in the Norristown area.
May was once again a productive month for the Young Lawyers Section. Keep
your ears (and inboxes) open for more volunteer opportunities throughout the
summer!
