Independent Judiciary

About: a court battle california doesn't need - los angeles times

This article points out the foibles of having a judiciary which is neither independent of economics nor politics. While it is an article which is heavily aimed at California's gay marriage issue it points to a judiciary in West Virginia which seems to have been bought with money.  State judiciaries are in question here, but one can also see the political problems with the SCOTUS. It should be a given that justice herself be independent of influences except the law & wisdom. How else could you have truly equal rights without?
I pose the question here of how do we make the judiciary even more independent of undue influences?
I would like to see Obama complain about the high salaries & awards to lawyers!!! Perhaps that would kill 2 birds with one stone. The second one is the high cost of malpractice insurance to pay for lawyers solving the high cost of medicine. The first is the obvious best lawyer money can buy scenario. I would actually like to see a lawsuit where lawyers are sued for unequal protection due to economic factors.
