Kagan: Confirmation Process 'Sort of Broken'

U.S Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan told law students at the University of Alabama Friday that the confirmation process is “sort of broken,” and she isn’t sure how to fix a system that amounts to little more than theatrics at times. During the speech, Kagan said senators want to know how nominees will rule on cases, yet the would-be justices are limited in what they can say because of both judicial rules and the fear of providing critics with ammunition.
