Bench Memos

NRO’s home for judicial news and analysis.

Of a Personal Nature


This week I begin a year-long visiting fellowship at the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University, directed by Professor Robert P. George, someone familiar to NRO readers.  I’m privileged to be among a great group of fellows in residence this year; as I joked a few years ago at an international conference populated by renowned scholars, I think I’m the only one here that I’ve never heard of.

I should also take a moment to congratulate my new colleague, Princeton professor Keith Whittington, whose new book The Political Foundations of Judicial Supremacy scored an apparent first last week, winning two awards from the American Political Science Association: the C. Herman Pritchett Award from the Law and Courts section, and the J. David Greenstone Award from the Politics and History section.  Judging from reviews I’ve seen, the honors are well-deserved, and I look forward to reading Keith’s latest.
