Oath Breakers Unite!


Eddie Lazarus famously broke his oath of confidentiality as a Supreme COurt clerk when he wrote the book Closed Chambers about his time at the Court. Now he’s defending the group of Supreme Court clerks who (anonymously) broke their oaths to talk to Vanity Fair about Bush v. Gore. To future Court clerks who may be similarly inclined, Feddie offers some sound advice: “If your politics mean more to you than your honor, then don’t accept a judicial clerkship.”
