Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

He's absolutely fabulous!

Today, NPR aired a story on the pro bono gay rights work Roberts performed while at Hogan & Hartson. The head of the pro bono department, Walter Smith, discribes how Roberts never turned down anything that Smith sought him out for, though it was Roberts' prerogative to do so. Listening to Smith describe Roberts' willingness to help, however, makes me wonder if the story is a red herring. Smith's inflections lead one to image that Romer v. Evans was a big day for him, and his glee in speaking of Roberts' work on the case seems rather queer. And, so far it seems that the only help Roberts gave Jean Dubofsky was oral arguments tips, as our good friend Boethius reports.

After all, Roberts did not mention his involvement in Romer v. Evans when he filled out the Senate Judicial Committee questionaire.

You can find the approximately 4 minute audio clip here.
