What in the world are historians going to call this Supreme Court? Chief Justice Roberts has been so all over the map, ideologically, that it would be hard to call it the “Roberts Court.” They could try the “Thomas Court,” after the towering conservative who is its longest-serving justice. Or maybe the “Post-Ginsburg Court” after its famous liberal dissenter, who died last year. Or the “Breyer Court,” after its centrist liberal.
Why not, though, the “Hamburger Court”? This would be after the visionary law professor Philip Hamburger of Columbia University
