This Supreme Court Stuff Is Hard Work


He didn't use the word lazy, but that was Sen. Arlen Specter's suggestion when he asked Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy if taking two months off in summer limited the number of cases heard by the high court. "I don't think my colleagues would say we are under-worked," says Kennedy. "We are very proud that we get work done every year on schedule and on time. Our docket is 100 percent finished on July 1st," he explains. "The only way we can do that is by taking two months to read and recover and so forth before we come back."
