Akhil Reed Amar Looks at the Prospect of Having Wasted His Life...

Akhil Reed Amar:

I’ve only mispredicted one big Supreme Court case in the last 20  years. That was Bush v. Gore. And I was able to internalize that by saying they only had a few minutes to think about it and they leapt to the wrong conclusion. If they decide this by 5-4, then yes, it’s disheartening to me, because my life was a fraud. Here I was, in my silly little office, thinking law mattered, and it really didn’t. What mattered was politics, money, party, and party loyalty…

Fred Rodell tried to warn Akhil. He should have listened.

There has been one and only one judge who followed the law when he believed it commanded him to do things that were (i) bad policy, (ii) bad ethics, and (iii) disadvantaged his political friends.
