Re: “Fences make good controversies in Quapaw Quarter

I often see Nate commenting on law professors' Facebook posts. Now the self-appointed attorney from Mena is an expert on our neighborhood?

Re: “Legal panel won't go after McDaniel

Your screenname is quite appropriate, as your comment is complete batshit.

Re: “Justice for sale or rent

I've been aware of that for some time, wannabee conservative. That's the kind of thing that should be raising red flags, as opposed to this. Or the simple fact that Thomas is a complete lackey. (Seriously, want to have some fun? Find an opinion where he disagrees with Scalia. I've never seen one. Concurrences don't count.)

These think tanks file amicus briefs all the time. I doubt you could find anyone on the current Court that don't have something similar lurking around. If a judge had to recuse themselves every time someone filed an amicus brief, we'd have plenty of SC opinions with 3 or 4 judges on them. There are worse things that these guys get up to. Remember Scalia's little trip with Cheney?

Re: “Justice for sale or rent

Elena Kagan was the Solicitor General, meaning she represented the US in front of the Supreme Court. This is something Clarence Thomas never did, though he was a US CoA judge for 16 months. Some might argue she had much more experience than he did.

I despise Clarence Thomas. He's basically Scalia's lapdog, and it's a fair bet that he's the least intelligent judge on the Court, but this AEI simply filed amicus briefs on behalf of the litigants in these cases. That doesn't make them a party to the litigation, as the article here implies ("He voted in their favor...") Not really an ethical violation as such, though it smells pretty bad. Hate to be that guy, but I don't think going after him for this one is a winner.
