Linda Greenhouse Runs All Over The Frickin Place with Armour v. Indianapolis

June 14th, 2012

She says so much here, without any coherent theme, but raises some interesting questions about this case which I think is extremely under-appreciated. Read it till the end. I think her last sentence sums it up nicely:

No conclusions here. Just another mystery as we wait for the big one.

Though she seems to agree with the Chief’s dissent, she only criticizes him for having some ulterior motives. No critique of the majority and Justice Breyer. But she does criticize Thomas for joining the majority.

Can’t win.
