The New York Grimes

I hope the New York Times gets roasted for trying to dig up dirt on Judge Roberts’ children:

The New York Times has been asking lawyers who specialize in adoption cases for advice on how to get into the sealed court records on Supreme Court nominee John Roberts’ two adopted children.

There is no indication The Times had any evidence there was anything improper in the family’s adoption of five-year-old Josie and four-year-old Jack, both born in Latin America. Sources familiar with the matter told FOX News that at least one lawyer turned the Times down flat, saying that any effort to pry into adoption case records, which are always sealed, would be reprehensible.

Darned tootin’, especially since the only reason I could imagine they would want to examine the records is to try and scrounge up a birth mother or father to cause some trouble.

Does anyone have an alternate explanation? Best of the Web is more diplomatic about the matter, but I find the whole thing disgusting.
