Lochnerism
 n.— «The Court’s meddlesome approach towards state economic-proprietarian legislation, often under the guise of substantive due process, ended—only to be replaced by the still more meddlesome spirit of the double standard, largely fueled under the guise of the new equal protection. A new “Lochnerism” had come of age.» —“Of Courts, Judicial Tools, and Equal Protections” by Henry J. Abraham The Constitutional Bases of Political and Social Change in the United States Apr. 23, 1990. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
