Why We’ll Like Him

Jonathan Adler’s WSJ op-ed explains why those interested in the rule of law should be pleased with a Justice Alito. As Adler notes, Judge Alito "is not a dogmatic conservative; his record shows a man more interested in getting the law right and faithfully applying applicable precedents than scoring rhetorical points or advancing an ideological agenda. As he commented in an interview earlier this year, ’Judges should be judges. They shouldn’t be legislators, they shouldn’t be administrators.’" Adler concludes: "We may not all agree with all of [Roberts’ and Alito’s] decisions, but we will respect their judgment, appreciate their analyses, and admire their commitment to the law."
