I can see the parallel. It's wrong of them to comply before they have to, but if someone files a lawsuit, this court would declare minority scholarships unconstitutional.

I don't think that's a given, either way the University of Missouri should have been prepared to fight for their students and not immediately roll over to the Missouri Attorney General. Of course, those in the know of system president, Mun Choi, aren't surprised by him doing this.

Interesting observation. Though, I feel like this group would still be voicing grievances even if they were above the line.

while the supreme court is largely a joke these days, i'm glad that TREE LAW remains a bastion of justice

it's a good illustration of why the legacy admit discussion is so charged.

Fifteen minutes later, when the Kansas locker room opened its doors to the media, the Jayhawks were still crying. Literally, bawling. All of them. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen devastated college locker rooms -- after losses in the Final Four, the national championship game -- ever

I think it gives you a decent glimpse into who on the court takes their job seriously.

I think it shows more than just that.

 'As the final arbiter of the law, the Court is charged with ensuring the American people the promise of equal justice under law and, thereby, also functions as guardian and interpreter of the Constitution.'

CANON 3: A JUSTICE SHOULD PERFORM THE DUTIES OF OFFICE FAIRLY, IMPARTIALLY, AND DILIGENTLY.
A. RESPONSIBILITIES. A Justice should not be swayed by partisan interests, public clamor, or fear of criticism.

She's traumatized by conservative victories?  That shouldn't really be the case should it?  And yes, they are all partisan but I was surprised she was so open about it in public.

The characterization of those as “conservative victories” is from the NY post. Just based on the article she basically only said she takes it hard when she has a strong opinion on important constitutional issues that is not shared by the majority of her colleagues.

So your reading comprehension has let you down again.  I said they are ALL partisan but I was surprised she was as open as she was about it in public.  I don't think I've heard Thomas whine like she did?  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't recall accusing Thomas of whining in public, please correct me if I'm wrong.

What I was talking about -- and I think you understood but perhaps were just choosing to be willfully obtuse -- was the broader term of shenanigans. In this specific example, you were lamenting that Sotomayor is "whining" so openly. I'm saying if that -- (again, "that" being a SC Justice "whining publicly) if that offends your delicate sensibilities...well this other fella might have you downright clutching your pearls.

I'm honestly kind of surprised you weren't able to follow along on that one, it seems like an incredibly simple concept.

He's openly bitched and moaned about being underpaid, but he's too lazy to go get a better job.

Well, he seems to have picked up a side hustle.
