The lawyer quoted in the text says that the opinion was "excellent and clear-eyed rendering of the law and the problems with courts' overbroad interpretation which goes against the text." (Emphasis mine) I guess I'm just wondering if a judge or Justice finds his or her way to a decision that has wide-ranging policy implications, does it matter what, if anything, the policy motive is? Not asking rhetorically. Genuinely curious about your opinion on that.
