Two Incoming SCOTUS Clerks Previously Clerked For Health Care Judge Jeffrey Sutton

Earlier this year, Judge Jeffrey Sutton, a former Scalia clerk who spent much of his career as a leading conservative legal activist, rejected one of the many lawsuits challenging the Affordable Care Act. As a sign of the regard Sutton enjoys among the Supreme Court’s conservative members, two incoming Supreme Court law clerks are former clerks to Judge Sutton. One will clerk for Justice Scalia, the other for Justice Kennedy.
