Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh: His Jurisprudence and Potential Impact on the Supreme Court

From Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh: His Jurisprudence and Potential Impact on the Supreme Court (R45293, August 21, 2018): “understanding Judge Kavanaugh’s views on the law is one method to gauge how the Supreme Court might be affected by his appointment. In attempting to ascertain how Judge Kavanaugh could influence the High Court, however, it is important to note at the onset that, for various reasons, it often is difficult to predict accurately a nominee’s likely contributions to the Court based on his or her prior experience. That said, the nominee is a well-known jurist with a robust record, composed of both judicial opinions and non-judicial writings, in which he has made his views on the law and the role of the judge fairly clear. Central to the nominee’s judicial philosophy is the concept of judicial formalism and a belief that the ‘rule of law’ must be governed by a ‘law of rules.’” — Joe
