"New on Supreme Court Extra"
You’ll definitely want to check out some of the latest posts at our partner blog Supreme Court Extra:
Brad Joondeph writes of his experience having John Roberts as a “mentor” during a summer associateship at Roberts’ former firm, Hogan & Hartson. (Joondeph explains why he has “nothing but a profound sense of respect for John Roberts” and why Roberts “could ultimately be a progressive’s worst case scenario.”)
David Franklin, who clerked for Justice Ginsberg, ponders the immediate difference that Roberts’ confirmation will make to the landscape of constitutional law.
And American Progress’s Robert Gordon, the blog’s lead organizer, explains why Justice Scalia’s writings read “like a brief for Democrats like Chuck Schumer who are eager to press Judge Roberts on his views.”
(Congratulations are in order for the SCExtra contributors. The blog has already received some very positive reviews since its launch on Monday.)
