While most of the nine justices on the Supreme Court interrupt lawyers (and each other) with questions about the cases presented before them, Justice Clarence Thomas just sits there.
Thomas has been doing this for six years. He hasn’t asked a single question in that time.
Why’s he such a stick in the mud?
He said the lawyers presenting their cases are capable and don’t need guidance from the justices: “I don’t need to hold your hand, help you cross the street to argue a case. I don’t need to badger you.”
And now we know.
