Pro-Alito Letter


A letter out from a group of appellate advocates, law professors, and former Justice Department attorneys endorsing Alito’s nomination says:

Judge Alito has a well-deserved reputation as an outstanding jurist. He is, in every sense of the term, a “judge’s judge.” His opinions are fair, thoughtful and rigorous. Those of us who have appeared before Judge Alito appreciate his preparation for argument, his temperament on the bench and the quality and incisiveness of the questions he asks. Those of us who have worked with Judge Alito respect his legal skills, his integrity and his modesty.
Folks point out that every Justice Department since LBJ is represented.
