Speaking of “Judicial Activism”…

…the Court of Criminal Appeals has just essentially rewritten the Texas Constitution by (for all intents and purposes) eliminating the ability of appellate courts to overturn convictions for factual insufficiency.  I predict quite a bit of blawging over this decision to come; it represents a huge change in the law, despite the plurality’s bland assertions to the contrary.  Look at this way: any decision that makes a supercilious asshole like John Bradley happy MUST be bad, per se.
