Supreme court justices are government officials whose salaries are paid by the taxpayers, and their records, like those of the president, should be deemed public property and available for review after taking into account reasonable privacy concerns.

Apr 26th, 2015

The assumption is that the records of Supreme Court justices should be made public; the arguments used to reach this conclusion are the following:

(1)  Supreme Court justices are paid by the public (i.e., taxpayers), and their records should be considered to be public property.

(2)  As government officials, their records should be subject to review; the President is used as an example of such an official.


I hope this is helpful.
