Should Justice Barrett Have Recused Herself in the Rep. Kelly Emergency Petition Seeking to Throw Out Pennsylvania’s Electoral College Votes? What About in the Pending Texas Case?

I raise this as a question, as I am not an expert in judicial ethics. But I did think (and argued) that Justice Barrett should recuse in any Trump-related election litigation.

Trump was not a party in the ridiculous Kelly litigation, but he was the clear beneficiary of the attempt to disenfranchise PA’s voters. The same applies for the pending Texas case.

Would be interested in hearing from judicial ethics experts as to what the Justice should do in these cases.

And, to be clear, her recusal will not matter for the outcome of either case.
