The Divergent Judicial Careers of Phillip Kwon and Elena Kagan


NJ Democrats rejected Governor Chris Christie’s nomination of Phillip Kwon to the State Supreme Court. Why? Because he’s a Republican. And he’s on the staff of the Attorney General’s office.

Voting no, [State Senator Nia] Gill said nominees from the attorney general’s office typically present conflicts.

“I think it is imperative for the issues presented before the Supreme Court, from same-sex marriage, to affordable housing, to school funding, that the justice who sits on those cases cannot be part of the lawyers’ team or office that argued a position the year before,” said Gill, who said she opposed Chief Justice Stuart Rabner on the same philosophical grounds.

Gee, I don’t remember Democrats having any such scruples when Barry put White House hack Elena Kagan on the U.S. Supreme Court. Do you? She wrote the legal basis for ObamaCare, but don’t worry, she’ll be fair. She’s a Democrat! They invented fair!

Phillip Kwon? Eh, not so much. At least if you believe Nia Gill. Who’s incidentally looking to move to Washington as successor to the late Congressman Donald Payne. She’s already well-versed in duplicity; she’ll fit right in.
