Five myths about the Roberts court - Mark Tushnet // Washington Post

Five myths about the Roberts court - Washington Post:
1The Roberts court just calls balls and strikes.
2The justices are political partisans, just like Republicans and Democrats in Congress.
3Roberts’s vote in the Affordable Care Act case was an act of cowardice (or of statesmanship).
4The Roberts court is a strong defender of free speech. 
5Justice Clarence Thomas doesn’t contribute much to the court’s jurisprudence. 
Mark Tushnet is a professor of constitutional law at Harvard Law School and the author of “In the Balance: Law and Politics on the Roberts Court.”
