    Name A Current Supreme Court Justice That Doesn't Believe In Judicial Review

    should be easy.

    Name any of the Justices in the history of the Supreme Court who were against Judicial Review.

    Trickier: name two framers who were against Judicial Review? Name three framers who were for it?

    The problem is, of course, that there are those who 'support' judicial review when the Supreme Court rules in a manner consistent with their political dogma or subjective personal beliefs, then 'oppose' judicial review when the Supreme Court rules in a manner that conflicts with that dogma and those beliefs.

    The simple fact is the Constitution gives the Supreme Court the sole authority to decide when a State or States disagree with the Federal Government and when citizens do as well.
