Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

More on the 6th Circuit dust-up

Both New York Times and The Washington Post are running articles on the Martin-Batchelder disagreement on whether or not the accusation of misconduct (originally offered in a dissenting opinion by Judge Boggs) has any merit. The reporting on this is not as clear as it should be, in my opinion. Why is it that the focus of the newstories is which judge was appointed by which president (and who is the so called conservative and who the liberal) rather than the issue at stake: Did judicial misconduct occur, or didn’t it? It looks pretty bad for Martin, despite the obfuscation.
