Justice Stephen Breyer says judges on the Supreme Court ‘better be there for everybody’

September 13, 2021 | 7:39 PM GMT
Asked about a speech in which the court’s newest justice Amy Coney Barrett emphasized that members of the court rule by judicial philosophies and not personal political opinion, Justice Breyer said it’s important for the judges to see their decisions involving all people regardless of political persuasion. “It takes some years and then you gradually pick up the mores of the institution. And the mores of the institution – You’re a judge. You better be there for everybody, not just the Democrats or Republicans… Even if a Democrat or Republican appointed you.”
