This is a person who has been a tenured law prof for decades, head of Harvard Law School, and now is up for the US Supreme Court. NEVER TRIED A CASE!!!! Not once. Not small claims, not a DUI, nothing.
UPDATE: settling a case isn't trying it. If there was no trial, no one tried the case. In my first year in practice, I tried, oh, 2-3 cases, maybe more, tho my first jury trial had to wait another year or so. In other positions (prosecutor or PD), they might try several misdemeanors a week or felonies a month, but in the civil area trials are fewer. I just find it staggering that a person can be head of Harvard LS and a Supreme Court nominee without every trying anything. It's as if a person became professor of surgery and head of a med school and then Surgeon General without ever having sutured a cut or picked up a scalpel.
