Law professor Ronald Rotunda on why Justice Scalia made the correct decision in declining to disqualify himself from the Sierra Club’s case against his friend and (on one occasion) fellow duck hunting expedition member, Vice Preident Cheney. One of Rotunda’s arguments is this: “Judges do not divorce themselves from the world when they don their robes. They still are allowed to have friends, go on hunting trips, and live a life. . . .Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has given her name and presence to a lecture series cosponsored by the NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund, an organization that often argues women’s-rights issues before Justice Ginsburg. Should she disqualify herself from issues involving women’s rights?”
