    Should Kagan recuse herself from the BOCare case?

    Given her involvement in the administration that signed the law under review and her delight with its passage as Solicitor General, should she step aside and not be involved in this SCOTUS review of the BOCare challenges?

    Kagan should never have been put into the court, anyway - her involvement with many other cases in the past should have been an immediate tip-off to future problems.

    No. No direct conflict of interest.

    "I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."

    Thomas should not have been put in because of his treatment of women.

    Would your answer change if you knew about the code of conduct the judges are supposed to follow?


    According to 28 USC 455, a Supreme Court justice must recuse from “any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” The law also says a justice must recuse anytime he has “expressed an opinion concerning the merits of the particular case in controversy” while he “served in governmental employment.”

    and this ...

    On Sunday, March 21, 2010, the day the House of Representatives passed President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, then-Solicitor General Elena Kagan and famed Supreme Court litigator and Harvard Law Prof. Laurence Tribe, who was then serving in the Justice Department, had an email exchange in which they discussed the pending health-care vote, according to documents the Department of Justice released late Wednesday to the Media Research Center, CNSNews.com's parent organization, and to Judicial Watch.

    I hear they have the votes, Larry!! Simply amazing,” Kagan said to Tribe in one of the emails.

    I'm sure we could find reasons why every judge shouldn't be in if we cared to - TREATMENT of others isn't the same as CAREER related issues. It's not her lean or views - it's her past job experience that's in question.
