The New York Times’ article “The Next Big Thing in Law? The Harsh Jurisprudence of Justice Thomas.” is a fine example of why I tend to be conservative when it comes to law. This article evinces a longstanding problem I have with the left’s view of the courts; as a mechanism for implementing their sense of social justice, rather than deciding what is the law.
The article is also not even attempt to seriously look at and criticize Justice Thomas’ jurisprudence. Â It’s a juvenile screed of a quality I’d expect of a college newspaper, not the New York Times.
