Joan Biskupic on Stevens and Questioning Styles

USA Today's article on Justice Stevens reports he is keeping his retirement cards "close to his robes," although at age 89 it is "no secret" he might leave the Court.

The piece by Joan Biskupic is based on a 75 minute interview with Justice Steven and shares a number of interesting quotes:

"We're getting to a point that our cases are revisiting issues that I wrote on 10, 20, 30 years ago," he says. "I really have felt pretty good about re-reading the opinions I wrote many years ago. I have to confess that."


There is also an interactive feature by Joan Biskupic on all of the Justice's questioning styles during oral arguments:
