Supreme Court Justices: Middle Names
« on: September 09, 2004, 08:47:36 PM »
Well I don't really know where else to turn, and there are so many smart folks on here, I figure I'll take a shot. Does anyone know the middle names of Supreme Court Justices Scalia or Thomas? I have a professor who wants us to know for a test. I can't find it anywhere, not the Supreme Court website, not google, nowhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

I believe they don't have middle names:

Ruth Joan Bader Ginsberg
Stephen Gerald Breyer
John Paul Stevens
David Hackett Souter
Anthony McLeod Kennedy
Sandra [make my] Day O'Connor
William Hubbs Rehnquist
Clarence Thomas
Antonin Scalia

Well this professor says they both have one and he knows them. I guess it'd be crazy to think he could just tell us, instead of sending us on while goose chases. Thanks for the help though. Oh and I actually did notice your ordering of them. :-)

Are you sure your professor isn't trying to trick you?  I've found all the others many times over, but haven't been able to find those two.

It would be a really cruel joke if he was! The professor is a judge though, so I guess he thinks that it is important stuff to know. All he said was to know the full names (and he said including middle) and title of all nine justices for a test. Oh well, I doubt he can take off that much for it. Thanks for trying guys.

You could take this approach.  Tell him that they used to have last names, but then someone went back to the future and changed their birth certificates so they no longer have them.  If he says they do, tell him he's picking up radiation from the parallel reality that would have existed had no one gone back to the future to do this.

It will work like a charm. 

If you don't want to do that, try John.  John is the most common name ever... one of them has to have it for his middle name.
