In this story about the two Supreme Court Judges Roberts and Scalia and how they are influencing the style of the court and how their conservative views shape decision making, Joan Biskupic quotes Lecturer in Law Jeffrey Fisher who has considerable experience as a Supreme Court litigator:

"Roberts and Scalia both take a lawyerly approach and are up in the girders of the case," says Stanford law professor Jeffrey Fisher, who has argued before the court six times. "That's why a lot of their questions strike with particular severity."
