More on the schism within the Sixth Circuit

The NY Times (registration required) has this article on the split within the Sixth Circuit, and it says, among other things:

"In an extraordinary breach of judicial etiquette, the judges on the federal appeals court there have repeatedly accused each other of lying and underhanded conduct in important cases involving the death penalty and affirmative action. The public airing of these internal battles in decisions of such social importance has been the talk of appellate specialists nationwide."
