Supreme Court: Still no comment on Clarence Thomas


Two different sources, one of them a member of the Court himself, said today that Thomas is doing fine. Which makes it even stranger that the Court’s press office won’t provide an update on his condition, even just to say that he’s been discharged from the hospital or that he’s still there but expects to leave soon.

It’s as if they want people to worry, probably needlessly.

Yesterday they declined comment when asked how Thomas is doing. Today they were asked again. No comment.

Can we trust that Stephen Breyer would level with a tabloid cameraman when asked about Thomas’s condition?
