A Good Quarrel This weekend, June 20th at 4:45 pm and June 21st at 4 pm, authors of A Good Quarrel Timothy Johnson and Jerry Goldman will be on BookTV discussing their new book. Find out more about the show by clicking here.

About the Program: Charles Bierbauer (CNN), Lyle Denniston (scotusblog.com), Dahlia Lithwick (Slate.com) and Tony Mauro (American Lawyer Media) are among the Supreme Court reporters who provide an inside look at the manner, behavior and questioning of Justices during some of the most newsworthy cases in recent memory.

  • If you ever hear a Supreme Court oral argument then you will know very few “real” questions are asked of counsel. Often a Justice will ask a question to establish a launching pad for his or her theory of the case. Indeed, oral argument often devolves into the Justices trying to convince the other one to their side. It can often become a really bad McLaughlin Group show- sad to say.
