Buckley Jr., Wm. F.
June 1981
National Review;6/26/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 12, p741
The article supports the legal arguments of Professor John T. Noonan of the University of California Law School at Berkeley, upholding the power of U.S. Congress to limit the jurisdiction of the lower federal courts. Professor Noonan is testifying before Congress about the Helms-Hyde bill on abortion. His argument rests on the fact that the constitutionality of laws passed by Congress could only be declared, not by lower courts, but by the U.S. Supreme Court.
