  •  Roberts' pro bono work (none)
    I would love to see a list of his pro bono clients...if there are any at all.

    And I damn well hope some Senators ask him some questions on his commitment to the legal system serving the poor and other non-paying clients.

    •  here goes (none)
      "In one case he handled before the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, he represented a group of welfare recipients whose benefits had been terminated. He successfully argued, pro bono, that each was entitled to an individual hearing before benefits were cut off."

      •  And this from Orrin Hatch: (none)
        "Mr. Roberts also participates extensively in the pro bono program of his firm, assisting his colleagues prepare pro bono appeals on matters such as termination of parental rights, minority voting rights, noise pollution at the Grand Canyon, and environmental protection of Glacier Bay.."

        Hatch on Roberts, May 8, 2003

        Hard to know what his actual role in those cases was, or if he and his firm were for or against "termination of parental rights, minority voting rights, noise pollution of the Grand Canyon, or 'environmental protection' of the Glacier Bay."

        Maybe someone will check.
