Abstract

What does the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy mean for the ideology of the Supreme Court? By examining the judicial record of one of Kennedy's potential successors, Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Donald M. Gooch finds that not only would his appointment - or that of someone with similar views - push the Court farther to the right, it would also mean it would be more polarized, with far less chance of swing votes.
