Clarence Thomas Calls Veteran's Argument 'Especially Unconvincing' [View all]

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas called a veteran's arguments "especially unconvincing" this week as the court issued an opinion on a case involving benefits for former U.S. service members.

"Rudisill's contrary argument is especially unconvincing given that Congress included other period-of-service limitations in the very subchapter at issue," Thomas wrote in his dissenting opinion on the Rudisill v. McDonough, Secretary of Veterans Affairs case.

The context:

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling in the Rudisill v. McDonough case, siding with the veteran in a 7-2 ruling.


Thomas and Justice Samuel Alito wrote a dissenting opinion.


The two biggest assholes on the court.
