Alito and the Sheridan Case


Believe it or not, in one of the lead civil-rights cases (Sheridan) that the Left offers as evidence that Judge Alito is somehow dangerously out of the mainstream, the position that Alito took was later adopted by a unanimous Supreme Court. As my NRO essay today–”Deserving Derision: The Left’s ludicrous attack on Alito“–today discusses, the dishonest use that the Left makes of this case makes clear that Alito’s attackers simply can’t be trusted on anything.
