Hot appellate issue: how to pronounce cert?

How is ‘certiorari’ pronounced? Even Supreme Court justices disagree

Can you match the Justices to their respective pronunciations of "certiorari"?
• “ser-shee-or-RARE-eye,” rhyming with “fair guy.”
• “ser-shee-or-RAHR-ee,” rhyming with “Ferrari” or “car key.”
•  ___ pronounces the first two syllables “sertzee.”
• “ser-shee-or-ARR-eye,” rhyming with “far cry” or “czar guy.”
• “ser-shee-ARR-ee,” with a dropped syllable
