Supreme Court Declines to Hear Argument That Justice Kagan Should Recuse Herself From Upcoming ObamaCare Case


The Supreme Court isn't going to debate whether or not Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, who served as President Obama's solicitor general during the passage of the 2010 health care overhaul, should recuse herself from hearing an upcoming challenge to the law. Via Politico:

The Supreme Court on Monday denied a request for debate over whether Justice Elena Kagan should recuse herself from the health care reform case due to be argued in March.

Freedom Watch, a group led by Larry Klayman, asked the court for permission to file a brief on Kagan's participation in the case. The court on Monday denied the request without comment, though it did note that Kagan did not participate in the discussion.
