A Judge’s Solemn Obligation

“A judge can’t have any preferred outcome in any particular case. The judge’s only obligation – and it’s a solemn obligation – is to the rule of law.”
~ Samuel A. Alito, Jr.
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (2006- Present)

Recognizing the Responsibility

“So I had to be careful. I recognized the responsibility that, whether I liked it or not,
I had to accept whatever the obligation was. That was to behave in a manner,
to carry myself in such a professional way, as if there ever is a reflection, it’s a positive one.”
