  Judicial review - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Judicial review is the power of a court to review a law or an official act of a government employee or agent for constitutionality or for the violation of basic principles of justice.
Judicial review of federal and state legislation for constitutionality is established by Section 76 of the Constitution of Australia, making the High Court of Australia the second court in the world to exercise this power, after the US Supreme Court.
Judicial review is indeed intended as a safeguard against tyranny of the majority and has been successfully employed to challenge, for example, the national census efforts of the German government in the 1980s.
