Real World DC: SCOTUS Edition

Postby Kohinoor » Thu Apr 15, 2010 4:14 pm

Thomas: The pool for us — all of our clerks, or virtually all, with rare exception — come from the Court of Appeals… So you look first at the Court of Appeals — what does that look like? Then you look at what we pull from that…

The reality is that Hispanics and blacks do not show up in any great numbers.

Lee: “They don’t show up” — why?

Thomas: I don’t think it’s up to us to increase the pool. It comes from law schools and other judges.

Lee: But what’s in the pool has to do, unfortunately, with some of your decisions on the Supreme Court that have shut out many people of color in some of these institutions so if we go there, we could really have a good healthy discussion about some of your decisions.

News Flash... Justice Thomas does not agree with affirmative action.

The point?
