Judge (and Stanford Prof.) McConnell: Justice Gorsuch More Conservative Than Expected

This from Greg Stohr was very interesting:

Michael W. McConnell, a professor at Stanford Law School and former judge who sat on the Denver-based appeals court with Gorsuch, said it’s too early to draw firm conclusions. But so far, the new justice has been “at least somewhat more conservative than I was expecting,” McConnell said.

“The pattern is a bit surprising,” McConnell said. When each individual decision is examined, “I’m not sure that they are particularly skewed to the right, but the pattern is.”

Greg will be one of the panelist at UCI Law’s SCOTUS term in review July 10 (which will be webcast).
