Abstract:     
Dear Chief Justice Roberts: Please Tell Justice Scalia to Be Quiet

A review of Ryan A. Malphurs, Rhetoric and Discourse in Supreme Court Oral Arguments: Sensemaking in Judicial Decisions (Routledge 2013), 224 pages.

I am not the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. I would be willing to bet that you are not the Chief Justice, either. Unfortunately, therefore, neither of us is the intended audience for Rhetoric and Discourse in Supreme Court Oral Arguments: Sensemaking in Judicial Decisions (2013), a book that is “directed towards a single individual” — Chief Justice John G. Roberts.
