Hans von Spakovsky: What will Kavanaugh mean for the Supreme Court?

Wednesday 10:52 GMT

Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the newest justice on the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday and he will begin hearing oral arguments on Tuesday, Oct. 7, when the Court comes back from its Columbus Day holiday.

This is true not least of his evident horror of solitary confinement, which he shared with Dumas, Dickens, and many other 19th-century worthies.

Sotomayor deserves a nation's gratitude for her statement issued Tuesday following the Supreme Court's refusal to hear the case of prisoners — one now dead — who had been held in solitary confinement at the Colorado State Penitentiary.
