N/A
Justice William Brennan meaning of a statute ought to be discernable in actual language that the Congress has used. The difficulty is that very often you can t because the ambiguity that is a result, very often I m sure, as a compromise between differing views about the statute in the Congress. It just means we have to do the best that we can, but we are consoled if we ve guessed wrong as to what they meant. They can always correct it. When you re dealing with Constitutional interpretation the problem is a little different. What s due process of law? The Constitution doesn t define it. Equal protection under the laws Constitution doesn t define it. And we have to construe and apply clauses like that and there are many of them in the Constitution. As precedent has suggested they be decided, as against the whole background of the formation of the Constitution
