Elena Kagan Supreme Court Nominee – Elena Kagan has been picked to replace John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court.
It was revealed just moments ago that President Barack Obama will appoint on Monday a third woman on the Supreme Court, to replace the dean of the Supreme Court of the United States, John Paul Stevens.
According to The Associated Press Elena Kagan who has had a distinguished career as the first woman to become dean of the Harvard Law School will take over Stevens’ chair. Justice John Paul Stevens, appointed in 1975, announced his retirement earlier this year, leaving the president a second opportunity to appoint a female judge to the highest U.S. court, after Sonia Sotomayor. Elena Kagan’s approval by the Senate Democratic majority, should not pose difficulties. The Court has nine members appointed for life.
