Current Affairs: Why Amy Coney Barrett Should Not Be On The Supreme Court

“Sometimes her opinions have been downright cruel.”

“For Barrett, she is likely to care more about minute bureaucratic procedural issues than whether a person’s rightful legal claims are adjudicated (i.e. she prefers ‘the set of rules that are good because they’re the rules’ over ‘the set of rules that are good because they help people who need help’). She doesn’t care as much about the powerless, and that affects her judgments, because being a judge requires you to decide how much the claims of the powerless matter.”
