Alito on church and state

I’ll almost certainly write an op-ed on this subject, but for the moment you can take a look at this NYT article, this old Yale Law Journal note, and the 3rd Circuit opinions collected here. Here’s PFAW’s preliminary report, the AU press release, and the Alliance for Justice’s preliminary report.

Very preliminary bottom line: no surprises here; Alito is squarely in the mainstream of conservative jurisprudence, which means that the liberal interest groups will call him an extremist, perhaps even an incipient theocrat.
