Mining the Nominee's Views
John G. Roberts is now Bush's nominee to SCOTUS. My bet is that most of the questioning and public debate will be over his positions on social issues such as abortion. I particularly like Lyle Denniston's extended commentary on SCOTUSblog about the "gang of three." But we, of course, want to know what Judge Roberts' position is (or might be) on intellectual property issues.
The NYTimes describes his "paper trail of opinions" as "comparatively thin." According to FindLaw's profile on him, intellectual property has not figured in any of his more than thirty appearances before the Supreme Court.
So is his record blank in this area? I couldn't find anything, nor do I see anything in any of the more in-depth blogs, at least so far. Best bet: keep reading Supreme Court Nomination blog.
