Judge Luttig’s Sabbatical
Judge Luttig is a patriot and has been a brilliant jurist, and deserves thanks for his extraordinary services and good luck in his new career.
And he will no doubt remain on the short list of every serious SCOTUS observor for future vacancies. In fact, a period of practice inside one of America’s great corporations will be an additional argument in his favor when the next opening comes around. (And if that next opening is weeks away, his announcement today would not be an obstacle to his nomination at that point.)
