The following is an excerpt from “Conservatives’ takeover of Supreme Court stalled by John Roberts-Brett Kavanaugh bromance” by Richard Wolf
WASHINGTON – The conservative takeover of the Supreme Court
that was anticipated following President Donald Trump’s two selections
has been stalled by a budding bromance between the senior and junior
Chief Justice John Roberts
and the court’s newest member, Brett Kavanaugh, have voted in tandem on
nearly every case that’s come before them since Kavanaugh joined the
court in October. They’ve been more likely to side with the court’s
liberal justices than its other conservatives.
The two justices, both alumni of the same District of Columbia-based federal appeals court, have split publicly only once in 25 official decisions. Their partnership has extended, though less reliably, to orders the court has issued on abortion funding, immigration and the death penalty in the six months since Kavanaugh’s bitter Senate confirmation battle ended in a 50-48 vote.
