Identity Politics Trumps Judicial Qualifications At NYT

Written by , Posted in Identity Politics, The Courts, Criminal Justice & Tort

On Saturday the New York Times printed a collection of op-eds from various “legal experts,” describing “the kind of justice the court needs.”  Here’s the list they came up with:

  • A Politician
  • A Veteran
  • A Young Person
  • An Evangelical
  • A Nonbeliver
  • An Immigrant
  • A Gay Person
  • An Asian
  • A State Politico
  • A Great Heart
