Justice Breyer Mania

Today's NLJ's top stories feature two articles on Justice Breyer: Justice Breyer Takes On The World and Q&A: Justice Breyer's Interview with the NLJ.
His SoCal appearance in Beverly Hills a week from today is sold out, but you can put your name on the waiting list here at A Conversation with Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. The NLJ's lead story begins:
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer does not sound like he is retiring any time soon. "You want to know when. I don't know. I will figure it out at some point," the 77-year-old justice told The National Law Journal in a wide-ranging interview about the death penalty, collegiality on the court, and his new book The Court and the World. The book examines the range of cases in which the high court has looked beyond U.S. borders for insight. Breyer also talked about his upcoming appearance on Stephen Colbert's new "Late Show" on CBS.
