Professor Kalir Interviewed on Justice Thomas’s Ethical Lapses 

Professor Doron Kalir was interviewed by Business Insider about the recent ethical lapses plaguing Justice Thomas. The article focused on a comparison between Thomas’s recent allegations and the reasons that moved Justice Abe Fortas to withdraw from the Court 54 years ago. Kalir opined that in light of the length of the alleged Thomas’ violations (over 25 years), their scope (which included lavish gifts, a purchase of the Justice mother’s home, and high sums of money for his wife), as well as the attempts to hide all those — Fortas’ own violations pale in comparison. Still, under the current political climate, Kalir predicted that the chances the Justice would resign are between very low to none.
