Reader comment on: Kavanaugh's Experience
Submitted by Douglas Levene (United States), Oct 4, 2018 18:05
"It would be refreshing, actually, if some president were to nominate a corporate general counsel or a partner in a large law firm to the Supreme Court." We tried that. Lewis Powell was a partner at Hunton & Williams, and the president of the ABA. He was only an OK Justice. His biggest flaw was creating complicated balancing tests that were incomprehensible to anyone but him and made it impossible to predict how the case would be applied. We're much better off with Justices like Scalia, Thomas and, I hope, Kavanaugh.
