Many of Alito's rulings have been at odds with Supreme Court

Samuel Alito once wrote that employees who allege sex discrimination ought to have a tougher time proving their claims. The Supreme Court disagreed. Alito once argued that Congress hadnt granted state workers the family-leave benefits that are mandated for other employees. The high court rejected his thinking again. In Alitos 15 years of rulings on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, many of his interpretations of federal law and the Constitution are at odds with established thinking and practice, and ultimately theyve been rejected by large majorities on the high court he hopes to join.
