Kirsanow on Roberts


Has anyone over here at Bench Memos paid proper tribute to Peter Kirsanow? Today he has his third article on John Roberts, once again very informative–and once again very good news about Roberts’s jurisprudence. (Previous Kirsanow articles are here and here.)

The really good news–compiled as well by the indefatigable Ed Whelan all over this page–is that it appears John Roberts has a sound understanding of the illegitimacy of judging according to a results orientation, and that he unabashedly believes (what is scandalously disbelieved all over the legal academy) that there are correct and incorrect answers to interpretive questions under the Constitution.
