Sees the hidden

….Justice Bradley voted with the majority in this case even though she did not hear the original arguments of the trial. Is this the sort of “interpreting the law rather than inventing it” that she is promising? As Justice Abrahamson argued in her own dissent in this case, this appears to be an unprecedented move on the part of Justice Bradley. Since there’s no precedent it is hard to say that this ruling is wrong due to Bradley voting – but it’s clearly unseemly, and smacks of joining in with her friends on a ruling even though she didn’t participate in the fact-finding….
