On Sunday, Supreme Court Justice Amy Barrett showed her concern over the public opinion.

Amy expressed her concerned that Public may see the Supreme Court as a partisan institution.

“Justices must be hyper vigilant to make sure they’re not letting personal biases creep into their decisions, since judges are people, too,” said Amy at a lecture.

The lecture was hosted by University of Louisville’s McConnell Center.

Barrett also showed her desire and spoked about it that how she wants others to see Court as a non-biased and nonpartisan institution.

Barrett also said that media coverage doesn’t pay much important in reaching those decision and also remarked that “judicial philosophies are not the same as political parties.”

To say the court’s reasoning is flawed is different from saying the court is acting in a partisan manner,” remarked Amy.

Further she added, “I think we need to evaluate what the court is doing on its own terms.

Amy’s comment also led to major decision in which the Court declined to stop a Texas-law which was aimed to ban most of the abortions.

When asked about certain cases and their outcomes, Amy said its “inappropriate” to comment on specific cases.

Furthermore, she described Court as a “warm, collegial place,” and also guided the young women by saying they should know it is possible to raise a family as well as be successful.
