Who is your favorite Supreme Court Justice?

Postby target » Fri Feb 03, 2012 12:24 pm

I am sitting in a 2 hour class and bored. Also, I am preparing for an interview with a judge so just curious who are people's favorite justice.

If you ever take admin, regardless of your political leanings, Scalia's opinions are going to be the only things keeping you from killing yourself.

I'm hoping that this is just ignorance or an innocent troll and not an attempt to sabotage the OP's future interview.

Scalia is pretty funny and since my morality system is almost entirely based on whether I think somebody is funny, I would have to say him.

"One of his typical lies, not only repeated in a judicial opinion but inscribed on his tombstone in Arlington National Cemetery, was that he had been a soldier in World War I. Douglas was never in the Armed Forces. The lie metastasized: a book about Arlington National Cemetery, published in 1986, reports: "Refusing to allow his polio to keep him from fighting for his nation during World War I, Douglas enlisted in the United States Army and fought in Europe." He never had polio, either."

Wow.

Of all time? Probably Jackson or Holmes. Maybe Cardozo when he was on the NYCOA.

Close second would be Marshall.

I did an image search, and I'm kind of captivated with Samuel Freeman Miller. He's a hunk.

While Scalia is at least readable, I feel like he's the Oscar the Grouch of Supreme Court Justices. Whenever there is anyone who disagrees with him, he has to go into a stodgy 50 page dissent about why he is angry... every damn time.
