Bench Memos

NRO’s home for judicial news and analysis.

Still Groundhog Day!


AP is now claiming that there’s something new about the June 3, 1985, memo on Thornburgh that was included in the Archives release today. But this exact same memo (together with Charles Fried’s cover note) and a substantially similar May 30, 1985, memo were both made public on November 30. There’s no news here, and AP should stop pretending otherwise.
