Justice Breyer at The New Yorker Festival

The annual New Yorker Festival occurred about ten days ago.  This morning, the magazine posted a video of Jeffrey Toobin interviewing Justice Breyer, a “writers and subjects” session, here on its website.  Justice Breyer’s comments are divided into three parts, discussing the Justices’ collegiality, judicial independence, and public reaction to Bush v. Gore.  Those who follow discussions about judicial independence probably won’t be surprised to hear Justice Breyer’s gentle, suggested critique of judicial elections.  For more resources on judicial independence and judicial selection, see the American Judicature Society’s website here.
