Posted on 09/10/2010 3:32:10 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
When President Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court in May, we and many others reported out that shed likely have to recuse herself from a handful of cases for the upcoming term.
The reason: she was the Solicitor General for the U.S. So shed be conflicted on a number of cases, having already served as an advocate on many of them.

21 is a “handful”?
That’s quite a contrast to Eric Holder who as Attorney General secured the release of almost two dozen Yemeni terrorist suspects who just so happened to be represented by Holder’s law firm.
If she recused herself from all cases which she was incapable of understanding, she’d have to stay at home and play solitaire all day.
Another Obamadiot has been assimilated into the septic mass of the liberal dung pile.
She got big dyke hands so, yes, 21 is a handful to her.
Liberals have big hands. If you don't believe me, try filling one when they hold it out.
Who is the tiebreaker, Biden or Obama?
The lower appellate court ruling stands.
Thanks, I was being half fececious in the last post.
This could really be bad news though. Is there a list of the cases she would have to recuse herself from?
So she’s basically got a ceremonial position on the Supreme Court?
Unless she’s needed to weigh in on the godless liberal side, and then she just unrecuses herself? Is that about the size of it?
I’m trying to hunt that down right now.
Ok, here are the two briefs she filed this spring prior to confirmation pledging recusal. I just have to find the complete list for the remaining ten.

I don’t usually play Aunt spelling Bea....but that really should be facetious. Otherwise it looks as if you are half short of a sheet.
Henderson v. Shinseki,
Thompson v. North American Stainless,
Gould v. United States, Harrington v. Richter,
Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting,
Virginia Office for Protection and
Advocacy v. Stewart, and
Bruesewitz v. Wyeth
Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting
Premo v. Moore
All bet Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting seem pretty pedestrian. Chamber could be interesting as it has immigration enforcement implications.
She needs to be recused from all cases and replaced !
Wonder if any of the rest will be eligibility cases?
The decision of the lower court stands if there is a split decision by the Court. This is a problem.
