A Fix the Court FOIA has confirmed that the justices may opt out of U.S. Marshals Service protection when they travel outside of Washington. With threats against public officials ongoing, we think Congress should at least study what more comprehensive security for the justices would entail.
This is the third term in a row in which a justice has heard arguments in a case and then later realized he or she had a conflict that by law required a recusal. It's embarrassing, but there's a solution.
Rehnquist wrote memos explaining his decisions to participate in cases despite potential conflicts of interest. Scalia wrote one, too. Ginsburg and Gorsuch should do so now.
