    Problem as I remember it is how to define "neutral"?  After all Justice Roberts insisted at his confirmation hearing that he valued precedent, judicial restraint, that judges were just "umpires".

      We are talking about Learned Hand on one side and a Con Law Scholar on the other. Jstor has his review article.

      My guess is this is not what he envisioned as I believe their debate was front stage after the "excesses" of the Burger Court.

      Because refs can get corrupt. Countless football games were decided, not because of a better team, but because of a bad call from a corrupt ref. Same with basketball games.

      And legislation. That takes five corrupt refs per bad call.

      I'm variable race by having reverse engineered John Howard Griffin.
