David Gottlieb, professor of law, authored an opinion editorial for the Kansas City Star on Supreme Court impartiality.

Gottlieb wrote:

"Supreme Court justices are the most important actors in the judiciary. They regularly decide contentious and momentous cases on issues like elections, abortion and economic justice. More than any other judicial figures, Supreme Court justices should attempt to be and appear to be above the fray."
