Sen. Arlen Specter Says Kagan Critical of Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice nominee Elena Kagan criticized the court she is seeking to join during a private meeting with Democratic Senator Arlen Specter, the senator told reporters.

Specter said Kagan agreed with him that the court takes “too few cases” and erred this year in its landmark 5-4 ruling that struck down campaign finance limits. As U.S. solicitor general, Kagan represented the government in that case and unsuccessfully sought to keep those limits.

“She said she felt that the court was not sufficiently deferential to Congress,” in the case, known as Citizens United, Specter said.
