Volokh Ranks the Justices on Free Speech
Eugene Volokh has a very interesting post entitled Which Justices Have the Broadest (and Narrowest) Views of Free Speech?. Kennedy is broadest; Breyer is narrowist. Reading Eugene's nuanced and intelligent post got me thinking about the assumption, standard in political science, that a unidimensional left-right ideology line captures almost all of the variance among the justices. Is free speech an exception? Any political scientists out there willing to enlighten me?
