The Progress Report, 18 May 2009, gives us this quote from Jeffrey Toobin of The New Yorker:
"In every major case since he became the nation's 17th chief justice, [John] Roberts has sided with the prosecution over the defendant, the state over the condemned, the executive branch over the legislative, and the corporate defendant over the individual plaintiff. Roberts has served the interests, and reflected the values, of the contemporary Republican Party.”
