US Chief Justice Roberts – The First Term

Via LexisONE, Linda Greenhouse has an assessment at the New York Times of the first term of John G. Roberts Jr. as United States Supreme Court Chief Justice.

Although we have criticized Roberts previously at LawPundit for being too unmoving, we think he is making an excellent Chief Justice and will continue to do so, adding stability and greater unanimity to a court which was often sadly divided under predecessor Chief Justice Rehnquist. The law may in the last analysis be nothing more than “a matter of opinion”, but the Supreme Court should never give the country that impression.
