A Review by Kyle Peterson of the Book by Joan Biskupic Titled “Nine Black Robes: Inside the Supreme Court’s Drive to the Right and Its Historic Consequences”

From a Wall Street Journal column by Kyle Peterson headlined “‘Nine Black Robes’ Review: A Curious Court Chronicle”:

Joan Biskupic’s “Nine Black Robes,” an account of the Supreme Court’s “drive to the right,” is the product of “more than a hundred interviews,” the author writes. Ms. Biskupic spoke with “a majority of the justices,” meaning at least some of the court’s conservatives politely sat for her questions. After using the book to opine that the court is “off the rails,” “going backward,” “laying waste to precedents” and so on, you wonder if she’ll be allowed back into their chambers.
