Law’s Jonathan Adler discusses activities of Jane Roberts

Jane Roberts’s recruitment work puts Supreme Court ethics standards under microscope
Washington ExaminerJonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, said the activities of Jane Roberts—wife of Chief Justice John Roberts—don’t seem far different from underreported ethical questions surrounding the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her husband, Martin Ginsburg, who founded a tax practice law firm. “In all the years Justice Ginsburg was alive, or when her husband was alive, no one uttered a peep about her sitting on tax cases, about cases in which his clients might have had an interest because they could have been affected by tax rulings,” he said. “And I should be clear, I don’t think Justice Ginsburg did anything wrong.”
