Jones to step down

I apologize for the lack of activity recently, a few things (Yom Kippur, a paper, etc) have kept me somewhat busy.

The Chronicle is reporting that Chief Justice Edith Jones of the 5th Circuit will be leaving her position as Chief, though remaining on the court. She will be replaced by Justice Carl Stewart, a Clinton nominee.

In the light of some of the 5th Circuit’s recent opinions, I hope that the new Chief Justice will not be a Co-Magnon and not a rubber stamp for the GOP. Maybe it is the newfound Bostonite in me, but I am cautiously opportunistic.
