Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens rarely makes public appearances in Washington, D.C., outside the Court, but he made an exception last week, moderating a discussion on the 1803 landmark decision Marbury v. Madison at the Newseum. He even made a bit of news, revealing that if he had his druthers, new Supreme Court justices from now on would be sworn in at the Court, not at the White House, to symbolize the Court's independence. President Obama, take note.
