Reynolds Breezes Through Confirmation Hearings
Ezra Klein imagines a Glenn Reynolds Supreme Court nomination:
SPECTER: In Casey, the key test on following precedents moved to the extent of reliance by the people on the precedent.H/T Crooks and Liars.
And Casey had this to say in a rather earthy way: "People have ordered their thinking and living around Roe. To eliminate the issue of reliance, one would need to limit cognizable reliance to specific instances of sexual activity. For two decades of economic and social developments, people have organized intimate relationships in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event contraception should fail."
That's the joint opinion; rather earthy in its context. Would you agree with that?
SPECTER: Excuse me? Could you elaborate?
REYNOLDS: Hugh Hewitt has more!
