The nomination of Elena Kagan, President Obama’s nominee for solicitor general — the government’s top legal representative in cases before the Supreme Court — is now being debated on the Senate floor. The Senate is expected to vote on the nomination by the end of today.
Despite some tough questioning about past experience and legal positions by Republicans — including Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who today castigated Kagan for opposing military recruiting on college campuses; and Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pa), who complained that he hasn’t been able to get enough information about Kagan’s views — she is widely expected to be confirmed, as even Specter acknowledged on the Senate floor today.
As TWI’s Kate Klonick has written,Kagan — a graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law School, a former clerk to Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, and now Dean of the Harvard Law School — would be the first female solicitor general in U.S. history.
Kagan is also consideredto be a potential future nominee to the Supreme Court.
