Miers is out, who's next?
Howard Bashman has all the headlines here and SCOTUSblog has the President's statement here on Miers' withdrawal of her nomination. So, without further ado, it is time to contemplate who's next. Here are some of my prior posts on SCOTUS prospects and related issues:
- Will the next SCOTUS nominee have any criminal law background?
- Does SCOTUS need a trial judge?
- Brave New Justice and sentencing issues
- How would a Justice Gonzales or a Justice Thompson handle sentencing issues?
- A criminal law perspective on Janice Rogers Brown
- Speculating about Judge Roberts' view on criminal law issues
- Assailing the lack of criminal justice questions at the Roberts hearing
- Can Roberts bring consensus to SCOTUS sentencing jurisprudence?
UPDATE: SCOTUSblog and TalkLeft and the folks at Volokh and Balkinization and confirmthem and many others are buzzing about what might and should happen now. Though looking for particular names to speculate about will like this post at confirmthem which states that "[m]y favorites at this point (based on very limited knowledge) would be Batchelder, Corrigan, Owen, Luttig, Easterbrook, Jones, Williams, Pryor, and Garza, not necessarily in that order."
