Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas reportedly ended his silent streak Monday. His nearly seven year long silence came to an end when he offered up an opinion about the value of a law degree from Yale.
Although what Thomas said is not clear, according to a paraphrased tweet from SCOTUSblog, Thomas argued about the competency of lawyers with a Yale degree.
The transcript only records a few words that show Thomas as saying, “Well, he did not…” There was laughter in response to Thomas’ comment.
His comment came as a surprise to many. Thomas has not spoken in court since February 2006.
