Upon the nomination of U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
We extend our congratulations to Elena Kagan for her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. The current solicitor general, Kagan has distinguished herself professionally through public service, academia, and private practice.
A former dean of Harvard Law School, Kagan is a highly able attorney and legal scholar.
As the Senate prepares to fulfill its "advise and consent" role in the confirmation process, B’nai B’rith calls for fair and dignified hearings that will directly probe Kagan’s judicial philosophy with respect to vital issues such as church-state relations, discrimination in housing and employment, and refugee asylum.
See where B'nai B'rith International stands on the issues.
