Kagan Successfully Argued Comstock, Batting .667 Before SCOTUS

May 17th, 2010

Elena Kagan, who successfully argued United States v. Comstock, just notched another victory in her brief stint as an advocate. While she won in Salazar v. Buono, she lost (big time) in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. So Kagan is batting 2/3.

Still outstanding are Robertson v. United States, Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project, and Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Oversight Board.

Conceivably, Kagan could go 2/6.

Good thing she’ll be asking the questions next term, instead of answering them.
