Judge Says Supreme Court Should ‘STFU’ On Hobby Lobby

Posted: Updated:

(FOX 11 / FOX News) A Nebraska federal judge is making headlines again, this time for writing on his blog that the U.S. Supreme Court should have “STFU” rather than weigh in on the Hobby Lobby case.

Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf wrote on his blog Saturday that in its next term, the Supreme Court should “go quiescent” because it has “proven that the court is now causing more harm (division) to our democracy than good by deciding hot button cases that the Court has the power to avoid.”

“As the kids say, it is time for the Court to stfu,” he wrote, linking to the Urban Dictionary definition of that acronym, which is “shut the f*** up.”

Kopf, who was appointed to the bench in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush, has taken heat for telling Congress to go to hell and saying young female lawyers shouldn’t dress too suggestively.

In October, he urged his fellow judges to declare all of their employees “essential” so they could continue working during the federal government shutdown. And in March, he followed up with a blog advising young female judges not to dress too slutty, or risk being called ignorant sluts — admitting he was a “dirty old man” except when it comes to his daughters and other young women he “deeply” cares about. He later apologized to anyone who thought the post was “harmful to the image of the federal judiciary and truly treated women as objects.”
