    Think how many duels we would have today if criticism of that sort were grounds for a duel. So, Jefferson started the whole ball rolling, but there is very little evidence that by the time the trial came around almost two years later, he was doing any lobbying or trying to press for any conviction of Chase. LAMB: We're about out of time. That's just a personal decision.

    Rehnquist on Chase: impatient, over-bearing and at times arrogant, but not malevolent. What I may think later about it doesn't bind them at all, so it's just far better to just leave it and not get into that subject. That's an act of Congress. As Hamilton says in "Federalist '78," "the Court has neither the power of the purse," which, of course, the Congress has, "nor the sword," which the executive has.

    It is just totally contrary to the way we do business to ever have anything come out about a case until we're ready to decide it, then the whole thing comes out. Notes on half-title: Judge's freedom unique to this country, p. Issue of debt--first break between Hamilton and James Madison. It did not change with the times, and they had no idea of expanding the national beyond the Appalachians. So, Jefferson started the whole ball rolling, but there is very little evidence that by the time the trial came around almost two years later, he was doing any lobbying or trying to press for any conviction of Chase. Court of last resorts--Supreme Court--what it says is the law, is th law.

I think if the Chase impeachment had come out differently and if it had been thought permissible to impeach and remove a judge because you profoundly disagreed with his judicial views or his conduct on the bench, there probably would have been more.

Chase acquitted. He and all of his colleagues would live in the same boarding house here in Washington during the very short term of the court. LAMB: And you all just decide that internally? Another thing was my three years in the Justice Department immediately before I came here. It created a great deal of ill will in Chase's time, and it just about ended with Chase, I think.

LAMB: Why? LAMB: What Grand inquests book you think of the way the press covers the court today? Perhaps you should say there should be mandatory retirement even of members of the court, members of the federal judiciary.

REHNQUIST: I suppose you can say that it is desirable that public office turn over, even in the case where it's not elective; that is, you wouldn't want to have any removal proceedings available.

An ordinary person can get those, can't they, Toni [Toni House, the court's public information officer]? Are not the people of the United States the plaintiffs in this case as represented by their Congressmen?

Wanting to test the act in court, Johnson fired Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, but instead of a court case he drew impeachment. Notes on half-title: Judge's freedom unique to this country, p. I think every one of his successors had to admire him. Given the failings of human nature and so forth, I'm not surprised that there have been the number that there have been.

They might have been much more attached if they had the question hour, I think. LAMB: If you say there are 5, petitions that come through the door now, how many of those end up in that courtroom in there?

Gerhardt. Feb 21,  · As Chief Justice William Rehnquist noted in his book Grand Inquests, some senators declined to convict Chase despite their partisan hostility to him, apparently because they doubted that the mere quality of his judging was grounds for removal.

All impeachments of federal judges since Chase have been based on allegations of legal or ethical. Inquest. An inquiry by a Coroner or medical examiner, sometimes with the aid of a jury, into the cause of a violent death or a death occurring under suspicious circumstances.
