When Justice Breyer came to my studio this fall, there were two ground rules for the extended interview: No discussions of politics or current cases. Justice Breyer, like the other justices I have met or known, is among the most affable of men, but I don’t doubt he or they would react very negatively to any attempt to push them one way or the other except via the briefs and the arguments.
