Reference: The political questions doctrine
Reference information: However that may be, the need for courts sometimes to avoid contentious issues remains, and the political questions doctrine—whatever its specific boundaries—is an expedient solution. Of course, the Supreme Court's now nearly complete discretion in its certiorari jurisdiction gives it maximum flexibility to take or reject cases—without any explanation. Federal district courts do not have that discretion, so for them the doctrine may be important. It would appear that the political questions doctrine is useful to the Supreme Court primarily as an occasional opportunity to remind the public and the lower courts of the need to show restraint, respect for constitutional boundaries, and the need for prudence in exercising the judicial power of the United States.
