The Supreme Court came into rare, direct contact with the legislative branch Thursday for a budget hearing before a subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee. Justices Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas testified on behalf of the Court's $66.5 million budget. The discussion included topics such as minority law clerk recruiting, cameras in the courtroom, the splitting of the 9th Circuit and the Court's $122 million renovation, which is behind schedule because the windows were measured incorrectly.
