Chief Justice Roberts: What is the difference between texting and E Mail?
At one point, Justice Anthony Kennedy asked what would happen if a text message was sent to an officer at the same time he was sending one to someone else.
Justice Scalia seemed surprised that the text message goes to the server, and not directly to the phone.
“You mean (the text) doesn’t go right to me?” he asked.
These guys are obviously computer illiterate. Are they really capable of rendering an expert judgment on the issue? I would say they should recuse themselves, but who is going to replace them?
Many of them are septuagenarians, they are clearly out of touch with today’s technology. I suppose they will render some kind of decision in the case, but Supreme Court will probably become the laughing stock as a result of this case.
Americas already don’t hold the presidency or the Congress in high regard, it looks like it is the Supreme Court’s turn next. Why do these justices keep serving until they have to be literally dragged away? Perhaps there should be an upper age limit for Supreme Court justices (like there is in Canada).
