   I've written about the overreach of the federal judiciary in this space often, so it's great to finally see the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, doing something about it. At this point, it's just a lawsuit, but at least it's a warning shot over the heads not only of rogue judges but of rogue states like California who seem hell-bent on forcing a constitutional crisis.
   Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Saturday slammed “activist judges,” whom he accused of overreaching and paralyzing the government by shutting down Trump-era policies they object to via nationwide injunctions. At a Federalist Society event at Georgetown University, Sessions blasted judges who have shut down controversial Trump-era policies such as denying funding for so-called “sanctuary cities” and repealing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
    “The court is not superior; the court does not get to have the final word in every dispute, give me a break,” he said.
