Kagan Now Recused From 21 Pending Supreme Court Cases
WSJ.com ^ | 09/10/2010 | Ashby Jones

When President Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court in May, we and many others reported out that she’d 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 she’d be conflicted on a number of cases, having already served as an advocate on many of them.

No doubt, some of the cases in question are listed at #16

"So she’s basically got a ceremonial position on the Supreme Court?"

Partially. She's recused herself from 25 that are already on the docket. The Court typically hears between 80 and 100 each term. There's a possibility that there could be more recusals in the future, but I wouldn't hold my breath. She'll probably hear at least 60 cases, or more.

Thompson v. North American Stainless is a Title VII case. That might be interesting.

Does Title VII create a cause of action for third-party retaliation for persons who did not themselves engage in protect activity?

Gee, I wonder how Kagan would have opined there? /s

Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy v. Stewart also peaks my curiosity because it's a 11A case.

Issue: Whether the Eleventh Amendment categorically precludes an independent state agency from bringing an action in federal court against state officials for prospective injunctive relief to remedy a violation of federal law.

The rest of them are pretty inside baseball, and probably of not much interest to the casual observer.

That reminds me of that GEICO spot with the pig riding in the back seat of the car going, “Wee, wee, wee!” Funniest GEICO spot ever.

IF - big “IF” there - she actually recuses herself from any cases coming up in the Court. She is a communist liberal. Why should she be believed if she actually did say she would recuse herself during press interviews and her propaganda showoff trial in the Senate hearings.

And the WSJ is actually merely pointing out that she SHOULD recuse herself as biased in these cases. She is actually 100% biased and has prejudged 100% of the cases coming up between now .. and doomsday. Or her death, whichever is sooner.

I think she calls him Max the first time, but I can’t make out what she calls him the second time.

She resigned as Solicitor General in May; the suit vs. AZ was filed in July.

“Who is the tiebreaker, Biden or Obama?”

The janitor, Mort. He is more knowledgable than Kagan.
