Editor’s note: This article is in response to the September 12 column by The Legal‘s editorial board.

I disagree with the premise of the opening sentence of your September 12 editorial, "Absence of Seventh Justice Impairs Court’s Ability to Act." You write that the suspension of Justice Joan Orie Melvin "left the court divided equally with three Democrats and three Republicans, creating the possibility of 3-3 split decisions."
