  • I'm not a robe-sniffer. I don't hang around judicial locker rooms sniffing for a few tidbits of judicial gossip or special insight. I rarely follow Supreme Court decisions, looking for subtle shifts in the Court's reasoning. I find most of that reasoning just judicial statesmanship, about as interesting and revealing as a presidential stump speech. Further, there are hundreds (perhaps thousands) of law professors much smarter than I who will mine most of the recoverable ore from these opinions. When I do doctrinal scholarship, I'm usually interested in lower court opinions and decisions from earlier centuries.
