Teachers teach, writers write and judges decide cases. Barry Schaller has always been known as a man of many talents, and he doesn’t sound like he’s about to give up any of his pursuits now that he’s officially a Connecticut Supreme Court justice. Schaller was a trial judge from 1978-92 and served on the state appellate court from 1992 until this summer. He has also taught at Yale University and Trinity College, and he’s been working on a book on bioethics that will be published this fall. The 68-year-old Guilford, Conn., resident was nominated to the state Supreme Court in August and formally sworn in last month. In reality, though, he’s been hearing Supreme Court cases for almost a month. “The day after Labor Day, I got myself moved over here very quickly,” he said in an interview with the The Connecticut Law Tribune. Here are excerpts from the rest of the conversation:
