We’ve drawn some interesting tidbits from conversations with the chief and Justice Elena Kagan. Scroll down to read one commentator’s take on what the chief justice missed in his comments about the court’s legitimacy.

Thanks for reading. We welcome feedback and tips. Contact Marcia Coyle at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @MarciaCoyle
