Asked about in an interview, Justice Breyer responded: “I don’t think I will bet on it.”

November 30th, 2009

In an interview with Justice Breyer in the Daily Journal, Lawrence Hurley asked Justice Breyer about

DJ: Just one other thing – it goes to the visibility of the court – just the other day a recent law graduateĀ  launched a Supreme Court fantasy league Web site []. People can go case by case and predict the outcome and there’s a prize at the end of the term.

Breyer: I don’t think I will bet on it.

DJ: I don’t think you’d be allowed to. I thought it does show there is that kind of public interest in the court we were talking about.

Breyer: I’m glad the public is interested. The more the public knows about the court, the better.

Straight from Justice Beyer. This is too cool. Is this *kinda* a citation from the Supreme Court?

Just because Justice Breyer won’t bet on it, shouldn’t stop yout. Sign up today!
