Rudy and the Commitments

On Townhall yesterday Rudy Giuliani posted his "12 Commitments" to the American People. Here's #9:
"I will reform the legal system and appoint strict constructionist judges.
America must reform its legal system. We need to eliminate nuisance lawsuits through “loser-pays” provisions. Tort reform can help us reduce costs passed on to the consumer, such as higher insurance premiums. Activist judges threaten to expand the power of the courts beyond the bounds established by the Constitution; we must reassert the proper balance."
