Roberts Memo Urged Laws Prohibiting Busing, QuotasBreaking News
Roberts and Caroline Kuhl, who were special assistants to Smith, said the aim of enacting new laws on these two topics was "to guarantee that our policies cannot be easily undone." They also advised strengthening the practice of mediation -- in lieu of litigation -- as a way to "abate the influence of the courts," noting that in addition to the American Bar Association, "certain Christian fundamentalist groups have formed negotiation programs."
The memo was among several written by Roberts, and released yesterday by the National Archives and Records Administration, that pointed up the nominee's partisanship in his early jobs at the Justice Department and the White House. The records were released in response to Freedom of Information Act requests by The Washington Post and other organizations.
