Proposal would prevent courts from overriding TN legislature

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -A plan in the Tennessee legislature has some people accusing state leaders of a power grab.

But lawmakers think judges are taking the right to make decisions away from the legislature, and have a plan some say does the exact opposite.

Over the past few years, the courts have had their say on some high-profile pieces of legislation. From throwing out abortion restrictions to temporarily halting the guns in bars law, the decisions haven’t always made lawmakers happy.

Dread said this looks like a legislative power grab that leaves Tennesseans with little protection.

“It makes really no sense at all. It makes the legislature pretty much the absolute authority, and there’s no protection for individuals who feel they’ve been wronged by any law whether it be cuckoo or not,” he said.
