Judge Kennedy Strung Up Down By Daltonistas

Not Justice Kennedy, recently

Wall Street Journal, Friday, November 20, 2009 -- "Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy said he was frustrated by criticism of his response to a school newspaper's coverage and called it a misunderstanding that spiraled out of control. Justice Kennedy went to New York's Dalton School on Oct. 28 to speak to students about civics.

Shortly after, the student newspaper ran a note saying "numerous publication constraints" had delayed its article on his talk. The New York Times then reported that Justice Kennedy's office had barred the student paper from publishing an article without its approval.

The story flashed across the Internet, prompting editorial writers and bloggers to brand Justice Kennedy, for years one of the court's strongest free-speech advocates, a hypocrite."
