Justice Thomas hasn't spoken in the Court since February 2006... today, he finally broke his long-held silence.
to tell a joke.
http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2013...s.html?hp&_r=0Justice Clarence Thomas did something at a Supreme Court argument Monday for the first time in nearly seven years — he spoke.
But what Thomas said is not clear, other than he appears to have joked about Ivy League lawyers...
Two lawyers in the courtroom said Thomas was joking about Ivy League law school graduates, although one said it was at the expense of Thomas' alma mater, Yale, and the other said rival Harvard was the butt of the joke.
Thomas hasn't asked a question in court since February 22, 2006.
a quality Jurist and a true credit to the court.
