Endorsement of Virtue and Dignity: Justice David H. Souter’s Letter re Randy Holland Nomination

Supreme Court of the United States
Washington, D.C. 20543


May 30, 2007

Dear Mr. Brady:

Thank you for your letter about the nomination of Justice Holland for the Christensen Award. To the extent that any word from me might help in forwarding the nomination, I’m most happy to supply it.

The American Inns of Court has become synonymous with insistence on intellectual responsibility and personal decency within the practice of the profession. While the focus is on lawyers, Randy Holland stands for these virtues among the judges. His intellectual work is on the record for all to consult, and as the Circuit Justice assigned to the Third Circuit, I can attest to the valuable collegiality he has had a hand in fostering between the judges of Delaware and their Federal counterparts. He should be in the Inns’ pantheon.

Yours sincerely,
David Souter
