Justice Barrett shifts the Supreme Court rightward. But on the issue of due process, she echoes her liberal predecessor
Good article, but for the 'I am a progressive - one of you' oaths at the beginning decrying the ACB appointment. My first thought was that it was gratuitous - not adding anything to the argument. On second thought I realized that the author regards the 'oath' as a necessary for two reasons: (a) it functions as a vaccine against anticipated criticism for being insufficiently pious, and (b) saying anything about ACB and Title IX without a preamble 'oath' would close a listeners ears and minds before considering the full article/argument. Together, they reveal the authors fears, on the one hand of criticism and the other that her audience's ears and minds will closed unless the oath is taken.
Thank you, for another good article delivered in an unbiased manner.
