Revealing look into the SCOTUS

An interesting post over at the Volokh Conspiracy reveals the dark underbelly of the Supreme Court. It starts with Justice Blackmun’s heavy reliance on clerks to write his opinions, leaving only cite checking for him to do. It also shows some of the viciousness of one of Blackmun’s clerks to other justices.

Just goes to show that even in the rarified, lofty perches of our Highest Court there is gritty dirt to be found.
