Richard Posner, the celebrated Seventh Circuit judge, has a bone to pick with the Supreme Court. This summer, he raised many hackles by declaring that the Court was "at a nadir," with no "real stars" on the bench since Justice Robert Jackson died in 1954. Just this October, Judge Posner argued, once again, that the Court "is awful," saying that only Justices Ginsburg and Breyer were good enough to sit on the Supreme Court.
Now Posner is back at it, firing another broadside against the Court. In a recently released video, Judge Posner described the Court as "a mediocre institution if ever there was one." He argued that Chief Justice Roberts was a "terrible manager" of the federal court system and criticized the Chief Justice's "stupid" decisions, along with the "terrible opinions" of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
