The following is from the Los Angeles Times, 1/9/92. Even the Supreme Court has grunt work, and sombody's got to do it. So how does the Chief Justice decide? William H. Rehnquist leads the caroling at the Supreme Court's annual holiday party, but many employees joke that he also keeps his ears cocked to find out who might not be singing. Shortly before the recent party, a law clerk asked Justice David H. Souter if he would sing. Souter deadpanned: "I have to. Otherwise, I get all the tax cases."
