A Notable Milestone for Justice Thomas

Today, February 22, 2010, marks the four-year anniversary of the last time Justice Thomas asked a question during oral arguments. His silence from the bench is well-document and has been discussed by commentators (including myself) quite a bit. Today, Tony Mauro has a few interesting tidbits to add in his article in the NLJ.

I should also note that the Supreme Court typically releases a handful of cases in the week following its February recess. In some years, the number is as high as five and in others it is as low as two. I have an impressively negative track record with predictions, but I’ll try again with this minor one: I say the Court will release three on Tuesday, 2/23 and two on Wednesday, 2/24.
