In the midterm election, Roosevelt and his liberal supporters lost control of Congress to the bipartisan conservative coalition. The Second New Deal in — included the Wagner Act to protect labor organizing, the Works Progress Administration WPA relief program which made the federal government by far the largest single employer in the nation the Social Security Act and new programs to aid tenant farmers and migrant workers. The final major items of New Deal legislation were the creation of the United States Housing Authority and the FSA, which both occurred in ; and the Fair Labor Standards Act ofwhich set maximum hours and minimum wages for most categories of workers.
New Deal Following the Wall Street Crash of and the onset of the Great DepressionFranklin Roosevelt won the presidential election on a promise to give America a "New Deal" to promote national economic recovery.
The election also saw a new Democratic majority sweep into both houses of Congress, giving Roosevelt legislative support for his reform platform.
Both Roosevelt and the 73rd Congress called for greater governmental involvement in the economy as a way to end the depression. It soon became clear that the overall constitutionality of much of the New Deal legislation, especially that which extended the power of the federal government, would be decided by the Supreme Court.
Holmes's loss of half his pension pay due to New Deal legislation after his retirement is believed to have dissuaded Justices Van Devanter and Sutherland from departing the bench.
A minor aspect of Roosevelt's New Deal agenda may have itself directly precipitated the showdown between the Roosevelt administration and the Supreme Court.
Shortly after Roosevelt's inauguration, Congress passed the Economy Acta provision of which cut many government salaries, including the pensions of retired Supreme Court justices.
Roosevelt's Justice Department[ edit ] The flurry of new laws in the wake of Roosevelt's first hundred days swamped the Justice Department with more responsibilities than it could manage. As Interior Secretary Harold Ickes complained, Attorney General Homer Cummings had "simply loaded it [the Justice Department] with political appointees" at a time when it would be responsible for litigating the flood of cases arising from New Deal legal challenges.
History of the Supreme Court of the United States and Lochner era Popular understanding of the Hughes Court, which has some scholarly support, has typically cast it as divided between a conservative and liberal faction, with two critical swing votes.
While it is true that many rulings of the s Supreme Court were deeply divided, with four justices on each side and Justice Roberts as the typical swing vote, the ideological divide this represented was linked to a larger debate in U.
As William Leuchtenburg has observed: Some scholars disapprove of the terms "conservative" and "liberal", or "right, center, and left", when applied to judges because it may suggest that they are no different from legislators; but the private correspondence of members of the Court makes clear that they thought of themselves as ideological warriors.
In the fall ofTaft had written one of the Four Horsemen, Justice Butler, that his most fervent hope was for "continued life of enough of the present membership One of the most famous proponents of this concept, known as the Living Constitutionwas U.
Holland the "case before us must be considered in the light of our whole experience and not merely in that of what was said a hundred years ago". Constitution as a static, universal, and general document not designed to change over time.
Under this judicial philosophy, case resolution required a simple restatement of the applicable principles which were then extended to a case's facts in order to resolve the controversy. Examples of these judicial principles include: The courts were generally moving away from what has been called "guardian review" — in which judges defended the line between appropriate legislative advances and majoritarian encroachments into the private sphere of life — toward a position of "bifurcated review".
This approach favored sorting laws into categories that demanded deference towards other branches of government in the economic sphere, but aggressively heightened judicial scrutiny with respect to fundamental civil and political liberties.
With the Judiciary Bill, Roosevelt sought to accelerate this judicial evolution by diminishing the dominance of an older generation of judges who remained attached to an earlier mode of American jurisprudence.
The balance of the Supreme Court in caused the Roosevelt administration much concern over how Roberts would adjudicate New Deal challenges.
Roosevelt was wary of the Supreme Court early in his first term, and his administration was slow to bring constitutional challenges of New Deal legislation before the court. Blaisdell  and Nebbia v. New York  at the start of At issue in each case were state laws relating to economic regulation.
Blaisdell concerned the temporary suspension of creditor 's remedies by Minnesota in order to combat mortgage foreclosuresfinding that temporal relief did not, in fact, impair the obligation of a contract.
Nebbia held that New York could implement price controls on milk, in accordance with the state's police power. While not tests of New Deal legislation themselves, the cases gave cause for relief of administration concerns about Associate Justice Owen Roberts, who voted with the majority in both cases.
