Prof. Ribstein has a post that provides insightful commentary on the new SCOTUS nominee, Judge Sam Alito of the 3rd Circuit Appeals Court. Ribstein analyzes prior business cases from Alito, including one on Delaware law (the 3rd Circuit includes Delaware). Interestingly, his post over the weekend, pre-dated the official announcement today. CNN has a more complete story about the nominee and the announcement today.
UPDATE: On the theory that relevant background on Alito should be of interest to all those who make their living in the legal profession, Instapundit’s post addresses the issues in an Alito decision involving the rights of a father of a child that the mother seeks to abort.
