He is a slave to stare decisis, and supports everything which makes me despise the USSC as an atrociously lazy bunch of folks..
He could do a lot to support changing the methodology regarding cases accepted, and could advocate a shorter, clearer method of issuing opinions on cases they accept. The vast majority of cases that they reject, but which are clear injustices could be resolved with a single paragraph and citation.
Frankly, the USSC has become the legal writing venue where baby lawyers decide what gets accepted, then write 60 page opinions justifying their beliefs.

Find out who the law clerks of these justices are. I will bet dollars to donuts the Justice's law clerks wrote the majority opinion(s). (would not be surprised if the writing clerk was a homosexual. Now THERE is a news scandal story. Does any news story have the fortitute to delve into that possiblity?)
