Sane or not sane, that is the question

Jess Bravin has this article in the WSJ on mock trials presided over by Supreme Court Justices.  They include a competency hearing for the indecisive Prince of Denmark and a court-martial for Col. George Custer.

"Several justices say the faux trials, which often raise money for causes like the Supreme Court Historical Society and Washington's Shakespeare Theatre Company, provide a convenient excuse for pleasure reading."

Major General Ginsburg also likes the fact that she can drink a couple glasses of wine before oral argument.

In a separate blog post, Bravin reports on Judge Posner's sourpuss dissent.

Thanks to How Appealing for the tip.
