Bench Pressed

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a confession recently: She doesn't read all the amicus curiae briefs filed before the Court. While appearing with Ginsburg at a panel discussion, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor indicated the same -- and said amici should file only when "they have something useful to say." Ginsburg singled out the "me too" briefs as well, saying, "I don't see why they don't consolidate." As she put it, "There are many friends of the Court -- sometimes too many to manage."
