Currie Quip

Professor David Currie has the honor of teaching Con law to Brian, Tom and me. Lucky guy. And talk about cool clerkships, Currie clerked for Judge Friendly and Justice Frankfurter (during the session when the Court decided Baker v Carr). Also of note, Currie has published 27 articles just in the University of Chicago law review.

Point being, today in class we were discussing Yakus and Professor Currie, discussing Justice Rutledge's dissent (which was joined by Justice Murphy), quipped, "Rutledge was a good judge. And Murphy... was in good company."

It's not a good sign when that's the best thing you can say about a judge...
