Sujit Choudhry in a New Written Publication on American Constitutional Law


Legal expert and business owner Sujit Choudhry is active in the field of comparative constitutional law. He established the popular Center for Constitutional Transitions some years ago and had written a vast number of articles, co-authored books on legal topics, and taught law students in several countries.

The Center for Constitutional Transitions was a way for lawyer Choudhry to contribute to comparative constitutional law. When he was a student, he would often notice the lack of answers and conclusive data on some of the matters including basic ant essentials aspects of the comparative constitutional law. That left him with the desire to help someday fill in those gaps and make the discipline more complete for the future generations of legal experts in the field.

One of the most recent publications of Mr. Sujit Choudhry was a chapter in the book titled Constitutional Democracies in Crisis? (medium.com).  Mr. Sujit Choudhry focuses on something that former Attorney General under President Obama Eric Holder said in a tweet in December 2017. Eric Holder stated that if the White House Special Council Rer Muller would be terminated from his position, then that would be an “absolute red line.” He added that there should be peaceful demonstrations against that and that Americans will be “determinative.”

Lawyer Sujit Choudhry discussed the statement at night and concluded that it was based on two concepts. The first one being the ”red line”, it is a symbol of a constitutional boundary in the American democracy. The other concept was left open to interpretation, according to lawyer Sujit Choudhry. He says that the way things were worded, the reader would have to decide on their own if their trust was betrayed and if officials have been abusing the authority that they held. Lawyer Sujit Choudhry then concludes that according to Eric Holder, Americans have the last and final word on the matter and it is their decision whether the ”red line” has been crossed or not.

Lawyer Sujit Choudhry’s conclusion in the chapter is that there is a strong presence of constitutional self-enforcement and a shift in the focal points. More views on iconnectblog.com.
