Members resumed questioning Judge Alito on his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court with a second round allowing 20 minutes for each member. Among the topics addressed in questioning were the role of the judiciary, powers of the executive branch in times of peace and war, abortion rights and privacy, his experience and activity in prior federal court cases and decisions. Several questions also focused on his prior involvement with an organization named Concerned Alumni for Princeton, potential past conflicts of interest in cases, and his opinions of past court cases.

This portion contained a response and an explanation of further investigations to be conducted into records of the Concerned Alumni for Princeton that Senator Kennedy had demanded during a heated exchange with Chairman Specter prior to a break in the hearings. close
