Jan Crawford Greenburg’s brand new book Supreme Conflict has already been compared favorably with the 1979 blockbuster The Brethren, and with good reason. Greenburg’s book, like the classic by Bob Woodward and Scott Armstrong, has a strong inside-the-marble-palace feel to it. And Greenburg, ABC News’ high court correspondent, offers never-told stories about the Rehnquist Court and the White House’s hectic search for former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s replacement. She says she spoke to all but one of the justices — and she won’t say which one stayed mum. But one difference between the new book and The Brethren was on display at an A-list book party for Greenburg at the Metropolitan Club on Jan. 24. Whereas The Brethren was uniformly hated at the Court when it came out in 1979, Greenburg’s book is clearly getting a different reception. Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel Alito Jr. were there — Roberts has apparently read parts of it already, and Alito bought a copy at the party — along with a full array of Greenburg’s sources and high-profile judges and lawyers. Appeals Judges J. Harvie Wilkinson III, Laurence Silberman, Merrick Garland, Janice Rogers Brown, and Brett Kavanaugh were on hand, as was Solicitor General Paul Clement and former SGs Theodore Olson and Walter Dellinger III.
