Bench Memos

re: Starr

Not to be harsh, Ed, but according to Mother Jones, Starr found it noteworthy in explaining his support for Sotomayor that “she twice came to Pepperdine to participate in a program the school runs for judicial clerks.” 

As a reader puts it: “If his support for her rests on stuff like that … it’s difficult to see why anyone should take his view seriously.  You can be sure, though, that if his support can be purchased so cheaply, lots of other Supreme Court hopefuls will accept his invitations to visit Pepperdine.”

I kinda hope there’s more to the story.
