Lawprof Letter Against Roberts:
Over at The Yin Blog, lawprof Tung Yin takes a critical look at the recent letter signed by 160 law professors opposing the nomination of John Roberts. An excerpt:
The weakness of the letter, as I see it, is that it fails the basic lesson of writing: "show, don't tell." The letter tells us that Judge Roberts does not deserve to be on the Supreme Court because the letter writer does not like Roberts' views of the right to an abortion or of the scope of the Commerce Clause or other areas of con law. What the letter does not do is show us that Roberts' views are intellectually flawed, deceptive, or otherwise objectionable on any basis other than outcome.Thanks to Michael Cernovich for the link.
