  1. Very interesting article. As to Thomas: doesn’t it change matters when a Justice’s spouse is involved? How many previously cases involved a spouse? I would think this would change the consideration. I strongly believe the Court needs guidelines, perhaps via constitutional amendment? Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the article.
    Regarding the Thomas case, he should absolutely be required to recuse himself. If a case comes before the court, in which a spouse or any immediate family member is involved, it should be a given that the justice recuse. The standard should be simply the appearance of objectivity. If a spouse/family member is involved, the justice can’t claim to be neutral or objective.
