ABA Committee: Kagan “Well-Qualified”
The American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary has rated U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice nominee Elena Kagan “well-qualified” for that position. That is the highest possible rating the committee can bestow.
The standing committee — independent of the association — reviews the integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament of all nominees to the federal courts, including those nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.
More information on the committee’s role, rating and process can be found on the standing committee’s website.
