Review of Alito's opinions finds clear pattern

During his 15 years on the federal bench, Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito has worked quietly but resolutely to weave a conservative legal agenda into the fabric of the nations laws. A Knight Ridder review of Alitos 311 published opinions on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals each of singular legal or public policy importance found a clear pattern. Although Alitos opinions are rarely written with obvious ideology, hes seldom sided with a criminal defendant, a foreign national facing deportation, an employee alleging discrimination or consumers suing big businesses.
