Samuel A. Alito, Jr.

Here's some quick information on new Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito, Jr. This information comes from the website Wikipedia .

His (Alito's) ideological likeness to United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia has earned him the nickname "Scalito."

* Alito wrote the opinion for ACLU v. Schundler, (1997) holding that a religious holiday display on city property does not violate the Establishment Clause.
* Alito was the sole dissenter in the 3rd circuit's decision on Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which struck down a Pennsylvania law requiring women to inform their husbands before getting an abortion.."

And this from Senator Harry Reid commenting Sunday on Justice Alito on CNN's "Late Edition":

...that is not one of the names that I've suggested to the president. In fact, I've done the opposite. I think it would create a lot of problems.

So far, this nominee looks pretty good.
