So the Howard government has finally decided to put a woman on the High Court. Federal Court judge Susan Crennan will replace Justice McHugh. She sounds quite a polymath – with interests in history and literature as well as law.
Hard to find much online, without wading through her federal court judgments. But I did see her expresing some scepticism about utilitarianism, indicating that Crennan J (unlike McHugh J) is probably no Posnerite.
