Supreme Court Justices Defend High Court Among Partisan Rhetoric

Washington Times: "Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, said the notion that justices have been more vocal in recent years could be because the 'cultural prohibition against [speaking out] has weakened' — meaning judges can speak more freely — or that they feel compelled to respond to the increasing politicization.

'It was certainly very helpful [that] Breyer spoke out against court-packing,' Mr. Levey said. 'It is helpful for the justices to all be on the same page and say, ‘Look, we don’t want to be seen as political, and we are basically doing our best not to’ — and I think there is a lot of truth to that.'"
