Justice Ginsburg on the five male Jusices’ “blind spot” in Hobby Lobby, and the influence of daughters on their fathersmirrorofjustice.blogs.com
Mirror of Justice: Justice Ginsburg’s recent interview with Katie Couric is getting a lot of attention. One Yahoo! write-up focuses entirely on Justice Ginsburg’s dissent in Hobby Lobby. The accompanying five-minute clip is worth watching. One of the more interesting exchanges was Justice Ginsburg’s expressed belief that the “five male justices” (in the words of Couric’s question) had a “blind spot” (Ginsburg’s words, repeated by Couric, and affirmed by Ginsburg) in Hobby Lobby. The same five justices also had a blind spot, Justice Ginsburg volunteered, “in Lilly Ledbetter’s case.” (Transcript of exchange below the jump.)
