JUDGE ROBERTS AS JUDGE. Shannen Coffin's article from today at NRO gives some insight into Supreme Court nominee Judge John Roberts, discussing three cases that have come before the Judge in his time on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Noting the futility of attempting to divine Judge Roberts' views or judicial philoosphy from briefs he had written while advocating for clients as an attorney, Coffin turns to Judge Roberts' judicial record and says the following:

From a review of just a handful of John Roberts’s written opinions, a picture emerges of a restrained jurist, highly respectful of the political branches of government, empathetic yet unwilling to allow sentiment to color his view of the letter of the law, and with a gentle but never inappropriate sense of humor.

Needless to say, Coffin gives Judge Roberts a strong endorsement and supports his confirmation.
