NAACP Legal Defense Fund Throw Support Behind Elena Kagan

 NAACP Legal Defense Fund Supports the Nomination of Elena Kagan to Supreme Court

 

WASHINGTON, -- With only days until Senate confirmation hearings begin on the nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) has released a report examining the nominee's civil rights record.  LDF has conducted an extensive review, focusing on her work as a law clerk, private practitioner, White House adviser, law professor, dean, and Solicitor General.  The report calls upon the Senate to fully explore her views on equal opportunity and racial justice during the hearings.

In its report, LDF states its support for the nominee: "Notwithstanding some concerns detailed in this report, LDF supportsElena Kagan's nomination to be the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.  Our review of her record leads us to conclude that she has the professional credentials, respect for the institutional roles of all three branches of federal government, intellect and independence of mind, ability to build consensus, and commitment to justice required of one who would serve in this critical role."
