ALITO UPDATE….I’m curious. I listened to a few minutes of the Alito hearing this morning and I heard Alito say that he thought Griswold v. Connecticut, the landmark privacy case, was correctly decided. But of course he won’t tell us whether he thinks Roe v. Wade was correctly decided. Why not?
Why is it OK to take a firm stand on some decisions but not on others? What’s the supposed algorithm here?
