Justice Souter Attacked While Jogging

Supreme Court Justice David Souter was attacked last night while jogging.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter was assaulted by two men Friday night and taken to a hospital with minor injuries, a court spokeswoman said. The incident occurred while he was jogging about 9 p.m. Friday, said Kathy Arberg, a court spokeswoman. Law enforcement sources told CNN the incident occurred near the Potomac River waterfront in southwest Washington, not far from Souter's home. Arberg said that the motive was not robbery, but law enforcement sources said it appeared to be a random attack.

The attackers were reportedly young men. Why would they randomly attack an adult male jogger at 9:00 pm except to rob him? For kicks? Strange. In any event, our best wishes to Justice Souter for a speedy recovery.
