Assessing Alito

by Jonathan H. Adler

Patterico has a few interesting posts on Judge Alito, the rumored favorite to be Bush’s next Supreme Cout pick. This post considers whether Senator Specter would support Alito’s nomination, and this post looks at Alito’s dissent in Planned Parenthood v. Casey when it was before the Third Circuit. They’re worth checking out, even if Alito is not the eventual nominee (after all, based on recent experience Alito’s status as the rumored favorite almost certainly means he will not be the pick).
