There’s No Middle Ground in American Law
What if a coherent legal philosophy could exist between the poles of living constitutionalism and originalism?In one sense, the problem is simply one of personnel: Precious few judicial moderates serve in America’s federal courts. This absence is most obvious at the Supreme Court, but courts of appeals and district courts suffer from it, too. The researchers Adam Bonica, of Stanford, and Maya Sen, of Harvard, have found, for example, that the present ideological distribution of federal judges resembles an inverted bell curve. We have lots of liberal and conservative judges, but few in between.
The abuse is alleged to have occurred in the Melbourne suburbs of Elsternwick - where the Adass school is based - as well as Elwood, Emerald and Frankston.
Court documents also alleged the abuse occurred at Rawson in west Gippsland and Blampied in the Central Highlands.
Leifer was extradited from Israel in January following a years-long court battle and after she was found to be feigning mental illness.
She left Melbourne in 2008, was charged by Australian authorities in 2012 and first arrested in Israel in 2014.
Her accusers - sisters Dassi Erlich, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper - were last year granted a court order allowing them to keep speaking publicly about their case and under their real names.
