Richard Epstein: @RichardAEpstein, Chicago Law, NYU Law, Hoover; and Gordon Chang, Daily Beast, in re:    Doing Justice to the Barrett Nomination    To the glee of his conservative base and to the consternation of his progressive opponents, President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett for a seat on the United States Supreme Court. My own preference, which was shared by others, such as Peggy Noonan, was to delay a vote on the nominee until after the election. But the course of events has moved rapidly in the other direction, and a no-holds-barred nomination fight is now upon us.  . . .
