I saw this story today , and I've got to say I absolutely love it. Here is the tag line:
“Clarence Thomas Just Asked His First Question in a Supreme Court Argument in 3 Years”
For those like me not familiar with Justice Thomas, he is one of the nine Supreme Court Justices and he is famously terse:
“He once went 10 years without speaking up at an argument.”
“His last questions came on Feb. 29, 2016”
You could say I was speechless upon reading this (see what I did there?), for a judge who sits over some of the most important trials in the US to basically never speak during oral arguments seems pretty incredible.
I work as an actuary and underwriter at a global reinsurer in London.
