The Corner

Justice Taylor

Stuart Taylor is possibly the outstanding legal journalist of our time. And he is my guest on Q&A. That podcast is here.

With KC Johnson, he is the author of The Campus Rape Frenzy: The Attack on Due Process at America’s Universities. Before, they wrote a book about the infamous Duke lacrosse case.

There are more pleasant topics, to be sure. But this is a vitally important one. Taylor and I talk about it, of course. But we also talk about other topics, including the most recent Supreme Court nominees: Merrick Garland and Neil Gorsuch. One didn’t make it; one will.

As I say at the end of this podcast, Stuart Taylor is sort of a supreme court himself. He tackles the hardest, thorniest cases — and he does so with absolute scrupulousness. He is a journalist of integrity, one who reports without fear or favor, letting the chips fall where they may.

Ethically speaking, I am against cloning, but sometimes I waver.
