Justice Thomas and the rail-car coupler



We've seen this before: pundits flaying the Supreme Court for supposedly extreme conservative rulings that (it's mentioned only in passing, or not at all) also were joined in by leading liberals on the Court. So when Jeffrey Toobin takes out after Clarence Thomas for a ruling overturning an award to an injured railroad worker, suggesting that it sheds a lot of light on the conservative justice's supposedly hard-hearted character, you do wish he'd give a little more emphasis to the high court's having been unanimous on the case.
