An Open Letter to Senators Moran and Roberts:
As a professor of constitutional law, I normally strive to be nonpartisan and avoid taking positions on Supreme Court nominations. I will make an exception in this case. Each of you recently announced that you will vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Please reconsider. Confirming Judge Kavanaugh will do lasting damage to the Supreme Court’s legitimacy as a nonpartisan and impartial arbiter of the law. Without that legitimacy, the Court cannot uphold the rule of law.
