Davies on TM's Lessons in Lawyering

Thurgood Marshall (LC)
Ross E. Davies, George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School, has posted Five Little Lessons in Lawyering from Thurgood Marshall, which is to appear in the Oklahoma Law Review 70 (2018):  779-791:
Thurgood Marshall – the famed civil rights advocate, lawyer, and Supreme Court Justice – was renowned for his storytelling, and this Essay revolves around stories – true stories – told by and about him. It is, therefore, a salute to the man by way of storytelling, in hopes that we may learn a few little lessons – some old, some maybe new – from his life.

This short article serves as a reminder of the absurdity of Justice Thomas' taking the seat vacated by Marshall. Of course, there are "stories" about Thomas revealed during his nomination hearings, but not for polite company. Perhaps the "lessons" of this article might be weighed by the performance of Justice Thomas.
