Summary of “The best thing Chief Justice Roberts wrote this term wasn’t a Supreme Court opinion”

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. delivered eight opinions and two dissents in the just-concluded Supreme Court term.
Sitting up front under a large white tent as John Glover Roberts Jr. took the stage was graduating student John Glover Roberts III. In Canaan, N.H., Head of School Christopher Day said, the 17th chief justice of the United States would always be known as the dad of “Our Cardigan ¬≠¬≠Cougar Jack.”.
You may remember Jack Roberts from his own moment on the national stage 12 years ago, when his father was chosen for the Supreme Court.
Roberts is considered one of the Supreme Court’s better writers, and his public addresses show a quick wit and professional timing.
“From time to time in the years to come, I hope you will be treated unfairly,” Roberts said, “So that you will come to learn the value of justice.”
A commencement speech is supposed to offer “Grand advice,” Roberts said, so his first was to recognize the exalted perch from which they started – a school with a 4-to-1 student-teacher ratio, where students dine in jackets and ties, and tuition and board cost about $55,000.
“You’ve been at a school with just boys. Most of you will be going to a school with girls,” Roberts said.
The New York Times a few years ago noted a study that found Dylan the most-quoted songwriter in judicial opinions, and said Roberts had “Opened the floodgates” by quoting the Bard of Minnesota in a 2008 dissent.
