Paul Collins Interviewed In Newsweek Piece On The Possibility Of Impeaching Supreme Court Justices

Paul Collins, Professor of Legal Studies and Political Science, discusses the possibility of impeaching U.S. Supreme Court justices who some have accused of lying under oath about their positions on Roe v. Wade during their confirmation hearings. “An argument can be made that justices who indicated during their confirmation hearings that they would support the precedent of Roe v. Wade misled the public when they voted to overrule Roe. I do not believe this amounts to perjury, but it may be demonstrative of failing to engage in good behavior, which is one interpretation of the standard by which judges may be impeached," Collins says.
