U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito says hello to Missouri Supreme Court Judge Richard B. Teitelman. Alito was the featured speaker at the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis Law Day event Monday at a downtown hotel. Alito says he’s “somewhat displeased” about the flurry of articles this year about fellow Justice Clarence Thomas’ years-long silence on the bench. None of the articles mentioned that Thomas’ practice of not asking questions during oral arguments is “exactly the same as the practice of the person almost universally regarded as the greatest Supreme Court justice ever — John Marshall,” the justice says.
