I loved the comment you made in reply to Kate. That was a very subtle way of making her look like a terrible human being.I also appreciated your fair treatment of Thomas. He gets a monstrously bad rap, and in particular, people who don't like his jurisprudence tend to seize on the lack of questioning. I thought it was very nice to hear someone who doesn't have much in common with him in terms of constitutional views offering a fair defense.I think it's a little unfair on women to call Kennedy a woman.
By the way, didn't you get the wrong case name? The knock and announce rule case was Hudson v. Michigan, not Davis v Washington. Also, the Court's online docket makes it easy to resolve the question of when cert was granted. It was granted before Rehnquist died.
Simon: Yes, you're right about the case name. Davis is the confrontation clause case. Kate, was she the one who seemed to think Roberts changed because at the hearings he talked like a decent, reasonable man but on the Court he turned out to be a conservative?
That's the one, yes.
