A New Supreme Court Nomination

supremecourt.jpgLast year we blogged about the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice John Paul Stevens has announced his retirement and President Obama has nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace him.

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, which conducts the nomination hearing before the Senate confirmation, will be posting all nomination materials online.

Since the Senate Judiciary Committee also conducts hearings for Executive Branch nominations, you can also read all the nomination materials related to her 2009 confirmation as solicitor general. These include transcripts of speeches, interviews, and letters from various individuals and organizations supporting her solicitor general nomination.

Want to learn more about Elena Kagan? The Law Library of Congress has recently created a legal resource guide about Ms. Kagan, including links to law review articles she authored, transcripts of solicitor general arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, and links to C-SPAN videos.
