US Supreme Court won’t hear arguments on Kagan recusal request

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to allot oral argument time to a group challenging Justice Elena Kagan’s participation in the health care challenge.

In an amicus filing supporting neither party in the case, the group Freedom Watch claimed Kagan’s work in the Obama Administration shows she “has demonstrated an extra-judicial bias and prejudice and must respectfully recuse herself or be disqualified,” according to SCOTUSblog.

Kagan did not participate in consideration of the oral argument motion – a routine approach for justices when a matter involves them directly. But considering that Kagan has participated in other orders related to the health care challenge, it is expected that she will hear the case.
