Legal Realism vs. Legal Formalism, William Douglas vs. Felix Frankfurter, Fred Rodell vs. Alex Bickel
I am told that somewhere in the back issues of the Yale Law Report there is a reminiscence of a dinner party conversation between Alex Bickel and Fred Rodell:
Alex: "Well, Fred, I may be naive, but I think that when the Supreme Court says something it means what it says."
Fred: "Well, Alex, we agree on this at least: you are naive..."
Does anyone have a more solid cite to this interaction between these two rare jackasses--from each of whom, however, one can learn a great deal?
