John Frank Says He’d Rather Not

Over at the Historical Society of the District of Columbia Circuit, there is a post (dated June 29) on an interesting exchange between the noted, liberal advocate John P. Frank, and Judge Skelly Wright from 1977, in which Frank explains why he resisted his Senator’s urging to be considered for the U.S. Court of Appeals out in Arizona and Wright asks him to reconsider and also try for the D.C. Circuit.  The post includes links to scans of the two letters, reproduced from Skelly Wright’s Papers at the Library of Congress.
