Here is PFAW’s report on Judge Alito’s judicial decisions. I assume these people have identified the decisions that liberals consider the most allegedly troubling of his 300+ opinions.
Though this might be kind of ambitious, I’d like to try to tackle about one of these a day, starting with the most controversial. So far, I have written about two of them: the Casey dissent on spousal notification for abortion, and the Doe v. Groody case on the strip-search of the ten-year-old girl (actually a technical case about the scope of a search warrant).
Even before Judge Alito was nominated, I focused on the Casey dissent as the likely Ground Zero for any debate about his nomination. I chose to follow up with the strip-search case because the lefties’ description of it was so lurid that it actually sounded like they were kidding. It made me curious.
I am soliciting suggestions for what cases to tackle next. Even if these cases have been discussed elsewhere in the blogosphere, I am hoping you will be interested in my take on them. For one thing, I guarantee you a careful reading of each case I discuss. For another, I guarantee you that I will tell you what I actually think, even if it may tend to harm the Alito nomination. I think I have proven that with my discussion of Doe v. Groody, in which I expressed some disagreement with one aspect of Judge Alito’s decision. You have my pledge that I consider my reputation for personal integrity to be paramount, and thus far more important than any contribution I might make to the success of a Supreme Court nomination.
Bottom line: I’ll give you the straight scoop as I see it.
So what cases do you want me to analyze? I plan to tackle the Family and Medical Leave Act case tonight.
