Four Supreme Court Justices Seek Consensus


February 13, 2018 at 10:16 am EST By Taegan Goddard

Bloomberg: “Kagan and Roberts are part of a quartet of relatively centrist justices, along with Anthony Kennedy and Stephen Breyer, who at times can turn their chemistry into a consensus and avert a sharp divide.”

“The group will be tested during what could be a divisive stretch starting next week, when the court reconvenes after a month-long recess. Between now and the end of June, the court will rule on partisan gerrymandering, voter-database purges, mandatory union fees, Trump’s travel ban and possibly his effort to rescind a deferred-deportation program.”

“The four justices are hardly ideological soulmates… But as a group they stand in contrast to their five less compromising colleagues — Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor on the left and Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch on the right.”

1. SC has no validity until Gorsuch removed and Garland seated.

4. Ginsburg and Sotomayor are NOWHERE near as extremist as Gorusch, Alito, or Thomas.

Ginsburg was recommended by Orrin Hatch.
