Did Justice Thomas Mock Yale Law School?

Did Justice Thomas Mock Yale Law School?
January 15, 2013

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas -- known for not speaking out during sessions of the court -- spoke on Monday, the first time in seven years of hearings. While the official transcript did not capture his words, recording only that Justice Thomas said the words "Well -- he did not -- ," court observers believe that he cracked a joke at the expense of Yale University's law school, which is where he went to law school, The New York Times reported. The Times explains how the case before the Supreme Court concerned the competence of death penalty lawyers, and some observers believe Justice Thomas quipped that a law degree from Yale could be a sign of incompetence.
