This organization has played an important part in sparking a dialogue between lawyers and judges,
and even at times amongst judges assiduously avoiding the temptation to take positions,
or to lobby and engage in political advocacy. Resisting that temptation takes discipline, I am sure,
but rest assured that you have made the right choice and are providing a genuine and unique service in so doing.
Stay the course!

-U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
