Conflict of Interest on the Supreme Court

I seldom recommend radio programs in this blog but have to make an exception for this morning's Diane Rehm Show on NPR. The topic--whether Justices Kagan and Thomas should recuse themselves from hearing case(s) on the federal health care reform laws--definitely merits attention from legal scholar and law students. But the discussion/debating skill demonstrated by the guests (Prof. Sherrilyn Ifill of U. of Maryland Law School, Prof. Jeffrey Rosen of George Washington Law School, and Jeffrey Toobin of New Yorker) are remarkable. It is an intellectual treat to listen to this program.
