More on Brown:

Orin's post on Brown's libertarianism prompts me to re-post a post of mine from July, which discussed an article by some political scientists that tended to confirm Orin's observations about Brown. According to the data reported there, Brown is substantially more "liberal" than the judges to whom she was compared in that study, not only on criminal justice issues, but also civil rights and liberties (if Orin is correct about her libertarianism, then it is probably the "civil liberties" portion of that formulation that accounts for her score). She is in the middle of that comparison group on economic liberties and labor issues.

The original post describing the article is here.

Alan H. (www):
While I don't know if she is the person I would nominate to replace O'Connor's spot, I would love to see her on the court. We have judges who are considered "Liberal", but that doesn't make them libertarian judges (IMHO). I think she would provide a nice intellectual balance for the court.
