Does Clarence Thomas’s Silence Matter?

A entire term without speaking once during argumentsNew York Times ^ | 02/17/2011Posted on Thursday, February 17, 2011 9:42:24 AM by SeekAndFindIt will be five years next week since Justice Clarence Thomas spoke during oral argument at the Supreme Court. Before falling into this long silence, he posed a question on Feb. 22, 2006. In the past 40 years, no other justice has gone an entire term without speaking at least once during arguments, according to Timothy R. Johnson, a professor of political science at the University of Minnesota.

Can a justice effectively perform his duties without participating in oral argument?

Does questioning the lawyers in court make much difference, or is it mostly a ritual, with the justices’ thinking pretty much set beforehand?
