Judge Rejects Right-Wing Groups’ Anti-Kagan Witchhunt

Earlier this year, the Department of Justice turned over piles of documents in response to a FOIA request for documents showing whether Judge Elena Kagan was involved in the Affordable Care Act litigation while she was solicitor general. Much to the right’s chagrin, these documents confirmed Kagan’s confirmation hearing testimony that she had no involvement whatsoever as an attorney. Nevertheless, two right-wing groups persist in their delusional belief that Kagan must have perjured herself during her hearing, and they demanded that DOJ turn over even more documents to allow them to continue their witchhunt. Last week, a federal judge shut them down.
