Kagan's recusals take her out of action in many of the Supreme Court's cases


www.washingtonpost.com

Kagan, 50, has recused herself from 25 of the 51 cases the court has accepted so far this term, all as a result of her 14-month tenure as solicitor general, the government's chief legal representative in the Supreme Court and the nation's lower appellate courts.

But initially, Kagan's absence will affect some important corporate and employment- discrimination cases, as well as a highly anticipated review of one of Arizona's attempts to crack down on illegal immigrants.

This is fantastic and this will lead to much discussion about how rulings are "invalid" due to there not being a full court ruling on the case.

Clearly at 50, Kagan has a long time to sit on the court and push her agenda, what ever that may be, it does seem foolish however to appoint someone who will largely out of action for the first 2 terms or so of the court - especially when it is increasingly in doubt that Obama wins another term and has an opportunity to further shape the court in his own way.

There had to be qualified folks who could have been confirmed that could have hit the ground running.

Color me surprised................someone Obama selected and appointed isn't prepared or qualified for the job they were selected for. She was a joke before the appointment, and even more so of one now. Yup, wonder how this will affect decisions of the court, if at all..............seems they are gonna screw us either way.

Yup. No different that putting someone up who has tax issues like Dashle who then needs to pull himself out of the run, or someone who has an illegal nanny and is looking to be either AG or on the Court, like Clinton did with Zoe Baird. You would think these boneheads would do a proper vetting. Seems they will spend any amount of resources to check up on the average citizen, but those who they deem qualified for high office are somehow not subject to the scrutiny of the Patriot Act and that other nonsense.
