Solum on Justice(s)
Lawrence Solum comments on our current justices, the rule of law, and whether we should have 19 of them. Well worth a read:
The core of my point is simple: a results-oriented, closely-divided court poses grave dangers for the rule of law--dangers that are greater than those posed by a either results orientation or close division alone.
My thoughts on the matter? Future Con Law students will hate anyone who raises the number of justices they have to memorize by that amount.
