Quote Of The Day


"The submission was not something I would expect from a first-year in law school. It was submitted for the sole purpose of throwing their names out there." --Judge Reggie Walton, commenting on a legal brief filed on behalf of Scooter Libby by Robert Bork, Alan Dershowitz, and ten other prominent law professors.

P.S. This isn't the first time Walton has talked smack about this brief. As Ana Marie Cox noted, when Walton agreed to accept the brief, he included this very snarky footnote.

P.P.S. And now I see the breaking news that Walton has ordered Libby must begin serving his prison sentence while he appeals.

--Jason Zengerle
