Author: William H. Rodgers, Jr.

I. Introduction


My nomination and appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court were not widely publicized. My collegiality was never held in high regard. My experience is limited but I think I understand the ways of nature and the use of language in treaty writings. I have listened for a sympathetic voice on this Court but I have not heard one. I will limit my dissents to seven. I will include one case from the 2002-2003 Term but will hold my tongue on many others. --Crazy Horse, J.
