What Are the Odds?
Today's issue of The Recorder contains an article about an online betting site where you can wager on who you think will become the next Supreme Court Justice, or which Justice will be elevated to the position of Chief Justice if that position were to become available. In the former category, Judges Luttig and Wilkinson of the Fourth Circuit are heavily favored. Judges Easterbrook (CA7) and Kozinski (CA9) are long-shots along with Senators Hatch (R-UT) and Kyl (R-AZ).
Justices Thomas and Scalia are predictably favored in the latter race, while you would make a killing in the event of a Souter Chiefship.
