It's a way to provide for fair and impartial courts. Judicial independence does not mean that judges are free to decide cases according to their own whims or prejudices. 2. It means judges have the authority to exercise their constitutional obligation to make hard decisions, unpopular decisions, without concern for retribution, personal or professional.
