At a Senate Judiciary hearing on S. 2648, Senator Biden criticized statements made by Judge Aubrey E. Robinson and Administrative Office director L. Ralph Mecham. In response to this, Mecham writes a memo to members of the Judicial Conference, clarifying his remarks. He attaches related correspondence between Senator Biden, Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Judge Robinson, and himself. He also attaches a transcript of the remarks he made at the D.C. Circuit Conference, which inspired the critical response from Senator Biden. Correspondence is dated 6/6/1990, 6/12/1990, and 6/26/1990.
