Memo to the New Justices: That’s Not How We Do Things on the Court

Memo to the New Justices: That’s Not How We Do Things on the Court

“Justices Abrahamson and Bradley seem to believe that their dissents are drawing attention to legitimate and serious defects in the craftsmanship of the judicial opinions at issue.  However, one can’t help but wonder whether the targets of their criticisms will merely dismiss those complaints as nothing more than sour grapes from two liberals who came out on the short end of the vote.  The risk is that, come re-election time, Wisconsin voters will be tempted to view these types of criticisms as having a purely partisan motivation, and will discount them accordingly.”
