Alito Fares Well In 2 Ratings

Judge Alito, nominee for Supreme Court Justice, is being assesssed by the ABA and a system developed by 2 law professors. Alito fares well from both reviews.

In 1990 the ABA, basing its grading on the testimonials of colleagues, an interview with the nominee and the assessment of academics, found Alito well-qualified, the highest rating. The same grade is expected from the ABA.

In the other analysis regarding Alito's independence, Stephen Choi, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley Law School and Mitu Gulati, a professor at Georgetown University Law Center, found Alito "came out fairly neutral. He was the fourth most neutral." Alito ranked 16th out of 74 active appellate court judges, with high marks for independence.

So, he is extremely qualified and an independent thinker. No wonder Senator Chuck Schumer has problems with him.

Thanks to Bill Suda for the link.
