Unitary Executive. It’s a Jersey Thing.

December 1st, 2010

From arguments inĀ Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy v. Stewart, further proof that the Garden State is simply different.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: Counsel, I have one question of curiosity. You said in your openingĀ argument that 49 of 50 states limit in some way the executive’s power in this area. What’s the one State.

MR. GALANTER: I am drawing that from the Indiana’s amicus brief and I believe they identified New Jersey as a State that has a unitary executive.

I won’t bother trying to explain. It’s a Jersey Thing.
