Of Clerks and Perks
A recent article in The Atlantic suggests that Supreme Court Justices have way too much time on their hands. They have moths off each year, spend a lot of time making money giving speeches, and generally running around arrogantly promoting themselves. Stuart Taylor and Bejamin Wittes suggest a novel solution: fire their clerks. It would force the Justice to do the research themselves, actually involve themselves in the process, and concentrate on what they were hired to do. Not a bad idea, I think.
