But I do not think he is a wise choice based on what I have cited above.
This was the most recent Alito thread, so I added the news update here. It was not a personal matter.

Do you have any basis for your conclusion? What is proper judgment and how do you measure it consistently? Are you separating pursuasive writing from objective judgment?

Casey for one

it can begin and end there.

A wife is not property of a husband or even subordinate to a husband.

his rulings on race are wrong

for him to rule that when one wins a judgement of discrimination
the offending party is only liable to the plaintive for that one instance only.

even if there is a proven pattern of discrimination.

with that reasoning each black child would have to had sued to attend an all white school

Again, it is not clear what your reasoning is, so I looked up the Casey decision.

For those unfamiliar, there were four abortion related cases heard by Alito. In three, Alito upheld all forms of abortion related rights. In the Casey decision, he dissented.

However, the description given that "wife is not property of the husband" is disingenuous at best.

Casey involved a spousal notification provision - not a spousal consent provision - HUGE DIFFERENCE.

Now, I reject old sexist notions that a man is not 50% responsible for a child. The responsibility starts at conception. Now, when there is a legal relationship and the husband is 50% responsible for the child upon conception, it does not seem unreasonable for a wife to notify her husband that she intends to end the pregnancy. Again, this is not a consent requirement, so the husband had no legal ability to stop the abortion, just know that it will happen.

How this represents poor legal reasoning ("it can begin and end there") was not articulated, and does not seem to be a very strong case at all.
