Seems like there is conflict of interest starting to show with nominee Alito involving a mutal funds case.


WASHINGTON -- Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr., who said in 1990 that he would disqualify himself from cases involving his sister's law firm, was a member of an appeals court that reviewed a 1995 case in which his sister's firm represented one of the parties, according to court records.

Doesn't take much sense that if a family member or friend is involved recuse yourself. Could this be the end of his nomination. The USA needs straight shooters in their Supreme Court, for the sake of its citizens.
