Casey meets with Kagan

Pennsylvania’s soon-to-be senior Senator sat down with Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan today. Here’s the press release his office just put out:

“My meeting today with Solicitor General Elena Kagan was very positive.  I was impressed by her knowledge of the law and her personal warmth.  I was also impressed by her honesty in answering questions and her understanding of the role of the judiciary in our federal system in ensuring the promise of ‘equal justice under law.’

“I look forward to continuing to monitor the confirmation process, which is designed to provide information and insight into the nominee’s academic background, judicial temperament and knowledge of the law.  I believe that her compelling personal story and diverse background and experience would serve her well in understanding and explaining the impact of the Court’s decisions.”
