Slow News Day, Corrected

| 0 Comments
As noted in this post, Justice Thomas's comment from the bench in Boyer v. Louisiana earlier this month was news on what was evidently a slow news day.  The Court has now posted a revised transcript.  From page 42:
JUSTICE SCALIA: She was a graduate of Yale law school; wasn't she?

MS. SIGLER: She's a very impressive attorney.

JUSTICE SCALIA: And another of his counsel, Mr. Singer -- of the three that he had -- he was a graduate of Harvard law school; wasn't he?

MS. SIGLER: Yes, Your Honor.

JUSTICE SCALIA: Son of a gun.

MS. SIGLER: Very exceptional.

JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR: Is that the minimum constitutional -

JUSTICE THOMAS: Well, there -- see, he did not provide good counsel.

(Laughter.)

MS. SIGLER: I would refute that, Justice Thomas.
