I don’t think Roberts would need to admit he was wrong in 2003. Legally speaking, he was right. There was nothing at all unconstitutional about Alaska making available the record of prior convictions or registering sex offenders. The excesses we primarily fight against have all come AFTER the Smith v. Doe decision. Which, if you have not read that opinion, you really must. It’s the most important case for understanding how we back ourselves out of the more onerous restrictions related to the sex offender registries.

All I’m saying is that Roberts should just stick with his arguments. That’s good for us.
