elena kagan confirmation hearings

From the Washington Post:

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan faced tough questioning from Republican lawmakers Tuesday as the Senate Judiciary Committee began a second day of confirmation hearings.

The opening round of questioning comes a day after Kagan told the panel that she would bring a “modest” approach to the Supreme Court and show great deference to the other, elected branches of government.

After hours of opening statements from senators and Kagan herself on Monday, the confirmation hearing for President Obama‘s nominee to become the 112th justice of the nation’s highest court reconvened Tuesday at 9 a.m.

The committee chairman, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.), began the day-long hearing by asking about Kagan’s family and about her response to criticism from Republicans for admiring the late justice Thurgood Marshall. The first African American to sit on the Supreme Court, Marshall is viewed by some GOP critics as the epitome of an “activist” judge.

Kagan defended her view of Marshall, for whom she clerked in 1988, telling the committee that he played a major role in making the principle of equal protection under the law a reality for minorities.
