Under The Sun

Tuesday, June 24, 2003

The justices of the US Supreme Court tend to vote in bunches.

Why yes, yes, they do. Because despite Prof. Suber's theoretical efforts, in practice there are fewer than nine distinct philosophies of law to be represented on the Court, and therefore, even before any Court-packing by the Executive branch, some justices will agree with each other's basic principles, and thus with most of their legal opinions. Duh.

(PS: Read the third review at the Amazon.com link above. It's really funny.)
