Another Follow-Up on the U.S. Supreme Court Death Threats

This is a follow-up to the 2 recent posts: More on Death Threats to U.S. Supreme Court Justices and Death Threats Against U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

Death threats have allegedly been made against U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ginsburg and O'Connor because they have argued that the highest court of our neighbours to the South should occasionally take into consideration foreign legal ideas. This openness seems to have infuriated certain "patriots" down there.

The cooperative law blog Slaw today contains a post entitled Comparative Law is a Matter of Life and Death that explores the matter further, comparing American attitudes with those in the relatively more internationalist Canadian and South African legal circles.
