Movie Night

What does the Supreme Court do to honor one of its retiring members? They get together to watch a movie. The nine Justices and retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor decided to spend Wednesday afternoon enjoying the John Wayne classic Red River.

This reminded me of the other movie views that the Court used to have. As recounted in The Brethren, the Justices would often view movies that were the subject of cases before the Court. These were usually indecency cases, so the movies were a little on the adult side. They watched them for, you know, research purposes...
