The Dhalia Lithwick: Off the Bench:

The court is the one branch that operates in near secrecy - no cameras, no tape recorders, no explanations...

I'm no lawyer, but I'm pretty sure that their explanations are in publicly available written form, for every decision they make.

Trust me, beneath their sunblock, and their duck hats, sit the nine most powerful, secretive public officials in this land. And whether you can name them or not is immaterial. Because after November, that president whose soul you've come to know so well is going to start naming a whole lot of their successors.

Of course, they said the same thing during the last Presidential election too, and none of them have retired in the last four years.
