Legislation via judicial action

“We did not feel the same confidence, however, in how the current Supreme Court would rule in our case, had we appealed. After ‘counting heads,’ we concluded that any decision from the current court would put the kibosh on challenging the housing allowance for several generations.” Got it. They will wait for when the balance of the court tilts their way. So, this kabuki case has nothing to do with right/wrong, justice, etc. but merely the advancing of a social/political agenda for which they cannot garner legislative support to advance their agenda in a way that reflects the will of the majority of voters. Legislation via judicial action. Got it.
