    This seems like the court stepping entirely into the legislative arena. So how do the other branches check or balance this kind of action?

      impeachment of justices. Every one of the RW ones have been guilty of conduct issues and out and out lying during their confirmation hearings yet no one has the nerve to impeach their corrupt asses.

      And of course there is the filibuster which pukes use at the drop of a hat these days but the Dems can't possibly be bothered to use to keep wingnuts with character issues off the court.
