Clarence Thomas

Breitbart has quite an interesting profile of Supreme Court Justice Thomas. Read the whole thing, but here’s the money quote (emphasis added):

When asked…whether he believes stare decisis usually requires following precedent, Thomas replied, “Sure it does—but not enough to keep me from going to the Constitution.” When the Supreme Court fundamentally gets a constitutional issue wrong, Thomas believes the Court often has a duty to correct that mistake in future cases rather than allowing the error to compound over time.

Exactly.
