Justice John Paul Stevens Dead at 99


Em Carpenter

Em was one of those argumentative children who was sarcastically encouraged to become a lawyer, so she did. She is a proud life-long West Virginian, and, paradoxically, a liberal. In addition to writing about society, politics and culture, she enjoys cooking, podcasts, reading, and pretending to be a runner. She will correct your grammar. You can find her on Twitter.

    He was one of the last of a kind in many ways. He was liberal Republican, he wrote his own opinions instead of leaving it to his clerks, and he did not participate in cert pool. He represented a kind of politics and public service that many people mourn in passing. To bad he couldn’t make 100.Report

    One thing in Ford’s credit is that he considered appointing Stevens to the Supreme Court one of his best accomplishments.Report
