In great news for Supreme Court enthusiasts and the news media, Justice John Paul Stevens announced Friday that he would retire at the end of this term. There aren’t many lifetime appointments made in this country, so we can safely assume that Justice Stevens will wonder how his legacy will be considered by future generations of historians, jurisprudents, scholars, and strippers.
Depending on your inclinations, the Justice’s 35 years on the bench of the highest court in the land may be remembered for a rather inauspicious tribute that came courtesy of the gentleman’s club Scores in 1998.
During former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s crusade to polish the Big Apple, he attempted to crack down on strip clubs and other purveyors of adult entrainment. Attorneys representing the adult industry appealed to the Supreme Court for a stay to keep their doors open while the courts reached a decision. The stay was issued by Justice Stevens and as the New York Times reported at the time, to show their appreciation, Scores renamed their Champagne Room the John Paul Stevens Room.
Looks like Justice Stevens doesn’t have to worry about putting his name on something inviolate. Your go Antonin!
