Update: Judge Jones is still on the lecture circuit
His calendar is booked with speaking engagements though the middle of 2007, mainly from people asking him to speak about judicial independence.
I don't know who would want to hear Judge Jones speak about judicial independence. Anyone interested in his views on the subject can just read his old speeches, like the one he gave to the Anti-Defamation League last February. In a Nov. 26 speech, he moaned that all of the media criticisms of his Dover decision "omitted to note the role of precedent, how judges work, the Rule of Law." He probably doesn't have much new stuff to add to what he has already said on the subject.
I think it is too early to tell what effect the ACLU parroting scandal will have on his popularity as a speaker.
