Ginsburg Asleep at the Bench


GinsburgDuring the Supreme Court session yesterday discussing the volatile Texas Redistricting Case (i.e. Tom Delay et al…), Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell asleep for about 15 minutes.

The subject matter was extremely technical, and near the end of the argument Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dozed in her chair. Justices David Souter and Samuel Alito, who flank the 72-year-old, looked at her but did not give her a nudge. via AP

The Bloggers have weighed in with Patterico noticing that the media barely mentioned the occurrence, but would have made it a front page story if the sleeper had been Scalia or Thomas.  RightWinged asks “Does She Always Do This?”. Gina Cobb says “Lets Give Her a Break, not all cases are fascinating.

And the conventional wisdom coming out of the blogosphere is that the redistricting will stand and not be overturned by the Supreme Court.
