The Dred Scott Case brought the issue of racism & slavery to the forefront of the American political culture. It has also been considered by legal and political scholars to be a “ghastly error”, the “product of an overly ideological and reactionary judge”, and a cause of the Civil War (5). Many abolitionists and Northerners declared the Supreme Court’s decision to be illegitimate. Others demanded obedience to the Court’s decision and decried disobedience as rebellion, treason, and unconstitutional. Does the Supreme Court have an obligation to try and solve big national problems that cannot be settled by the political process? In the selection of Supreme Court justices, how careful should the president be in choosing his nominee?
