Notable criminal law perspectives on Justices old and new
Around the blogosphere are some interesting new posts on some criminal law work by current and likely future Supreme Court Justices.
First, David Oscar Markus explains in this interesting post why he views Justice Scalia as "by far the most friendly Justice to criminal defendants." I think David's perspective is a bit too skewed by Justice Scalia's strong rhetoric when he (only sometimes) votes for a criminal defendant, David makes this sound point on the interesting topicof criminal law and stare decisis:
I'm happy when Justice Scaliaisn't a prisoner to stare decisis. If he was, we wouldn't have Crawford, Blakely, Gant, etc. I'm glad he's questioning cases that have been on the books for years because the law is more pro-government right now than it has ever been. The pendulum has started swinging back the other way, and it's due in part to Justice Scalia. Yes, criminal defendants are going to lose some too -- like Michigan v. Jackson -- but I'll take the above cases with that one.
Second, Kent Scheidegger has this helpful posttitled "Judge Sotomayor and AEDPA." Here are some highlights Kent's review of the SCOTUS nominee's record in this arena:
I decided to focus on this statute for several reasons. Decisions by federal judges under this law involve important questions of federalism. The Supreme Court's docket has been heavy with AEDPA cases ever since it was enacted.
The law is bitterly resented by many federal judges precisely because it was enacted to curtail their ability to lord it over state courts and because it rejected the notion that their judgments are inherently superior. Many, many federal judges have attempted to evade it, and a few have gone so far as to declare it unconstitutional. All of the latter have been reversed. Reversing the evasions has been a major part of the Supreme Court's workload, although, as one judge boasted, they can't reverse them all....Throughout [Judge Sotomayor's] opinions, I do not see the hostility to AEDPA that I have seen in so many opinions in the lower federal courts. The statute is largely applied as written and as intended.... On the whole, these are well-considered, well-written opinions that apply the language of the statute and the precedents of higher courts, easily within the limits in which reasonable people may differ.
Prior posts on the SCOTUS nomination and record of Judge Sotomayor:
- Some very early, very brief sentencing reflections on Judge Sotomayor
- A quick thought on Judge Sotomayor's sentencing work in Cavera
- Noting early unpublished sentencing opinions from Judge Sotomayor
- Judge Sotomayor on textualism and voting rights in Hayden v. Pataki
- President Obama to nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor for Supreme Court
- Notable background parallels between Judge Sotomayor and Justice Alito

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Notable criminal law perspectives on Justices old and new:
I am heartened to see a full time professional confirm very conservative Scalia's friendliness to criminal defendants. I have even named the coming increase in crime in his Honor's honor, the Scalia Bounce. He has been a good leader against sentencing guidelines he deserves to be honored for the guaranteed result.
In Blakely, Scalia broke his own rule. He referred to foreign legal authority, not just foreign, but foreign enemy. The latter King bowing and scraping weasel was not only foreign. He voted for the Stamp Act. He tried our beloved patriots in absentia.
I await confirmation of the reason for this counter-intuitive outcome. Scalia is a clueless victim of indoctrination by a criminal cult enterprise in law school. Its sole value? Rent seeking. Sentencing guidelines dropped the crime rate by 40%, a tremendous lawyer achievement ,after getting yelled at by a fed up pubic. That dropped lawyer jobs. Not allowed.

Here is something else I saw on Kurt's excellent blog. Prof. Berman will never ever refer to it because this blog is a biased left wing, pro-criminal defendant advocacy blog, posing as a neutral academic blog.
Warning. Multiple references to the V word. Most lawyers here should not open this link. If they get severe reactions, nausea, diarrhea, those may be signs of a severe side effect, the so called ARSR Syndrome, the anti-renting reaction syndrome. They should stop reading the article and immediately contact their doctor if that happens. Valium can usually treat it.

Apologies. Kent's blog, not Kurt's. He should turn on the comment function.

Just curious, SC: would you also describe Justice Scalia as a "biased left wing, pro-criminal defendant" Justice posing as something else? Would any judge or justice (or any blog by a lawyer) escape your label of a "biased left wing, pro-criminal defendant" actor?
I am just trying to figure out who else I should invite to the secret "biased left wing, pro-criminal defendant" club meetings (where we all swear never to say the V word).

Doug quoted Kent Scheidegger: "[AEDPA] is bitterly resented by many federal judges precisely because it was enacted to curtail their ability to lord it over state courts and because it rejected the notion that their judgments are inherently superior."
When Kent says "lord it over state courts," the "it" Kent is referring to is the federal constitution. That AEDPA "rejected the notion that [federal courts'] judgments [with respect to the federal constitution] are inherently superior" should tell you all you need to know about AEDPA's constitutionality, if you know anything about the constitution. (It would have been slightly funnier, if no more ironic, had Kent used the word "supreme" instead of "superior.")
The exhaustion doctrine--the doctrine which requires a person whose federal constitutional rights were violated by the state to present his claims first to a state court--is rooted in comity. Its purpose is to give state courts the first opportunity to correct their own violations. There is no good reason, however, why federal courts should defer in the least to these decisions, let alone that they should be prohibited from granting relief when the state court got it wrong.
I think it goes without saying that federal court judgments about the federal constitution are "inherently superior" to state court judgments about the federal constitution, especially when the State is a party to the proceeding, as it is in criminal proceedings. Anybody who has any experience with the state court system understands it to be a vastly inferior one, especially in the American South (and highly biased in favor of--surprise--the State).

S.C., our blog does accept comments. However, we are not as "laissez-faire" as Doug and do enforce our policies.
I don't think Doug poses as neutral. He has his opinions and expresses them frankly for everyone to see. Very few blogs are neutral.
DK's arguments have been refuted many times. No need to rehash the debate again here. See, e.g., 98 Colum. L. Rev. 888.

It's good to see a conservative reviewing Sotomayor's record and finding she gets the law correct sometimes. Very few judges are all-good or all-bad, and the ideologues who portray them that way don't add much to the debate. Kent just did.

Prof. Berman: Scalia is has extreme right wing politics and personal philosophies. The cult indoctrination and the rent seeking theory trump even the most firmly held beliefs. It trumps all, the welfare of self or family, even golf.
I compliment your courage in not expelling an owner of the law, who understands a little law, and knows its tricks. Most academics, including those defending the First Amendment, allow animal porn sites, illegal pharmacy sites, cursing, personalized death threats, vicious ad hominem attacks. All cool. Bring up rent seeking, indoctrination or the V word? Gone in 60 seconds.
I do not expect you to argue against your own beliefs, except in a client-lawyer relationship.
I suggest that you invite academically minded lawyers with other views, and start a guest blogger program. Daniel Horowitz is a lawyer. He rebutted the errors of law of Human Rights Watch in his report. I learned a lot in a brief time. Invite him as a fun and friendly intellectual challenge to your concrete encased views.

So Professor, if not Justice Scalia, then who?
Posted by: Markus | May 29, 2009 2:03:26 PM
Daniel Horowitz. His wife valiantly fought for her life against a busy 17 year old serial killer. Her struggle left enough forensic evidence to identify him. Were it not for her struggle, he would still be out there having his fun.
123D. We would be one wonderful woman ahead, if the count were to start at the correct, non-rent seeking age of adulthood, 14. The age of 18 has no biological distinction. It comes from unions seeking to keep competing labor off the street. It comes from teachers seeking to keep classroom seats filled at the point of a gun by people who would rather be elsewhere, working.

As a defense-oriented lawyer and an Obama voter, I was already nervous about the Sotomayor pick. I guess I should join Marc in applauding Kent's willingness to give credit where credit is (in his view) due, but, given Kent's strong views on the proper interpretation of AEDPA---views with which I sharply disagree, though I will not rehash those points here---his showering Sotomayor with bouquets of roses with regard to her own views on AEDPA is simply not helping my delicate nerves.
I think I may need to switch to the prescription-strength Pepcid AC...

IS THIS REPORTED GAY SANTA MONICA COMMISSIONER JUST ONE BAD EXAMPLE OF A NEW POLICY IN AMERICAN FAMILY COURTS ALL ACROSS AMERICA OF DON'T ASK AND WE WON'T TELL ???
LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS IS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE VERY REAL POSSIBILITY THAT COMMISSIONER DAVID J. COWAN OF SANTA MONICA CA COURT HOUSE IS A CLOSET GAY MAN OR FOR THAT MATTER ~ OPEN GAY MAN, THAT HAS SOMEHOW BEEN GIVEN COURT CASES INVOLVING FAMILY CHILD CUSTODY ISSUES AND IS THE NEWEST FACE OF WHAT IS TO COME IN AMERICAN FAMILY COURTS ACROSS AMERICA ?????????????????
MR.DAMON DUVAL AND HIS TWO WONDERFUL CHILDREN (MAYA & JAZZ ) HAVE ALL NOW BEEN KEPT APART FROM ENJOYING EACH OTHERS COMPANY BY COMMISSIONER DAVID J. COWAN SINCE DECENBER 4 2008. FOR SOME VERY UNCLEAR REASONING THIS APPARENT GAY NAPOLEON COMMISSIONER APPEARS TO BE MORE INTERESTED IN MR.DUVALS MENTAL HEALTH STATUS THEN THE LIVE IN BOYFRIEND OF HIS EX WIFE OF THE LAST 2 YRS., WHO HAS BEEN REPORTED TO THE EL SEGUNDO POLICE DEPARTMENT AS HAVING TOUCHED MR. DUVALS LITTLE 3 YR OLD MAYA ON HER PRIVATE PARTS ??
THIS SANTA MONICA COURT COMMISSIONER APPOINTED CHILDREN'S COUNCIL AT MR. DUVALS REQUEST (LAWYER AMY NEIMAN OF SANTA MONICA CA) WHO HAS BEEN MORE INTERESTED IN ACTING AS A MENTAL HEALTH EXPERT( WITHOUT THE QUALIFIED DEGREES ) AND MISLEADING THIS CHILD CUSTODY MATTER INTO GAY NEVER NEVER LAND WITH THIS SANTA MONICA COMMISSIONER FOLLOWING HER FEMALE INTUITION & ADVICE CONCERNING THE MENTAL HELATH STATUS OF MR. DUVAL!
FOR SOMEONE WITHOUT MENAL HEALTH DEGREES TO QUESTION THE PROFESSIONAL JUDGEMENT OF THE MENTAL HEALTH EXPERT WHO HAS ALWAYS STATED CLEARLY TO THE COURT THAT MR. DUVAL IS OF SOUND MIND AND WOULD TESTIFY IN PERSON TO THE COURT CONCERNING THIS FACT, IS ALMOST ANOTHER FUTURE LEGAL CASE FOR LA COUNTY WAITING TO HAPPEN ?
**WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE THE LA COUNTY COURT SYSTEM TO OPEN A INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO THE SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS THAT ENCOMPASS THIS POSSIBLE CHILD PEDOPHILE CUSTODY CASE AND HOPE THAT ALL CURRENT COURT APPOINTED LAWYERS WORKING FOR LA COUNTY LIKE AMY NEIMAN ARE ADVISED TO HELP PREVENT CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS RATHER THEN CREATING ONE IN THE FUTURE !
LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS WILL CONTINUE WRITING ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC LEGAL CASE ON THE WWW UNTIL A PROPER OUTSIDE INVESTIGATION OF THESE PEDOPHILE CHARGES HAS BEEN PROPERLY ANSWERED !!!
LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS HAS A VERY DIFFICULT TIME WITH ANY RESULTS THAT COME FROM THE EL SEGUNDO POLICE CONCERNING THIS INVESTIGATION DUE TO THE CLOSE RELATIONSHIP OF MR. DUVALS FORMER WIFES CURRENT DIVORCE ATTORNEY (MR.ROY KIGHT )HAVING HAD HIS LAW OFFICE SITUATED IN EL SEGUNDO FOR THE LAST 20 YRS.+ , AND HAVING GOOD FRIENDS IN EL SEGUNDO TO DO HIM CERTAIN FAVORS WHEN NEEDED !!!
~ A SIX MONTH RESTRAINING ORDER THAT BEGAN THIS CHILD CUSTODY SEPERATION OF MR. DUVAL AND HIS CHILDREN WAS BASED ON A EL SEGUNDO REPORT THAT MR. DUVAL SAYS WAS CLEARLY FABRICATED ABOUT HIM TO MAKE HIM LOOK BAD TO THIS PRESIDING JUDGE ~
*** ISN'T IT A LITTLE ODD THAT THIS EL SEGUNDO LAWYER MR.ROY KIGHT WAS ABLE TO PREDICT 22 MONTHS AHEAD OF TIME BY TELLING MR. DUVAL OUTSIDE A SANTA MONICA COURT~ ROOM THAT HE WAS "GOING TO TAKE AWAY ALL HIS CHILD VISITATION AWAY BETWEEN HIM AND HIS CHILDREN AND THAT THIS IS A POKER GAME FELLA AND ARE YOU READY TO PLAY " ***
NO MR. DEVALS MENTAL HEALTH IS NOT THE ISSUE IN THIS LEGAL CASE, THE REAL ISSUE HERE IS DID THIS DIVORCE LAWYER ROY KIGHT SET MR. DUVAL UP WITH GAINING FALSE TESTIMONY IN EL SEGUNDO CA AND INFLUENCE THE EL SEGUNDO PEDOPHILE INVESTIGATION OF HIS 3YR, OLD DAUGHTER ???
ATTORNEY ROY KIGHT IS ON THE RECORD AS HAVING PREVIOUSLY THREATENED MR. DUVAL OUTSIDE THE SANTA MONICA COURT ROOM AND WE FEEL MIGHT ALSO BE SO CAUGHT UP IN THIS CUSTODY BATTLE AND THAT HE MIGHT HAVE HAD WAY TOO MUCH INFLUENCE AND INTEREST WITH THE PEDOPHILE INVESTIGATION THAT NEVER TOOK PLACE ????????????????
LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IF LAWYER ROY KIGHT WOULD ADMIT UNDER OATH (AND SUPPLY INVESTIGATORS HIS PHONE RECORDS) AS TO NOT EVER ATTEMPTING TO INFLUENCE THE FORMER (NOW RETIRED EL SEGUNDO POLICE DETECTIVE MULRONEY CONCERNING THIS PEDOPHILE CRIMINAL LEGAL CASE ???????????????????????????
WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE INTERESTED IN PREVENTING FAMILY COURT GAY COMMISSIONERS AND JUDGES ACROSS AMERICA FROM CONTINUING TO ALLOW THEIR COURT APPOINTED LAWYERS LIKE (AMY NEIMAN OF SANTA MONICA) TO MISLEAD JUDGES AROUND THE COUNTRY LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN MR. DUVALS CHILD CUSTODY CASE IN SANTA MONICA CA,TO CALL THEIR GOVERNMENT LEADERS WHO THEY FEEL MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP MAKE THE NEEDED CHANGES IN THIS LEGAL PROCESS FROM SEPERATING AND DESTROYING OTHER FAMILIES IN OTHER CITIES AND TOWNS ACROSS OUR COUNTRY !!!
