In his new book, The Nine, Jeffrey Toobin writes that Justice Souter considered resigning from SCOTUS after the Court’s decision in Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000). According to Toobin, Justice Souter was “shattered,” and wept when he thought of the case.
Reason no. 236 why Justice Souter should never have been nominated to the Court. As Tom Hanks once presciently opined, “there’s no crying in [judging].”
