Justice Anthony M. Kennedy got a “collective groan” from the audience at the Aspen Institute’s Greenwald Pavilion Thursday when it was announced that he would not discuss the Supreme Court’s health care ruling, or any other specific case, according to the Aspen Daily News.
Justices’ opinions, he said, speak for themselves.
“We are judged by what we write,” Kennedy said. “We don’t go around giving speeches saying how great my majority opinion was or how great somebody’s dissent was. We don’t do that. That’s for the professors, for the legal profession, for the public, to hold the court accountable for what it does.”
