Justice Kennedy – The Swing Vote

Anthony Kennedy, a 69-year-old Californian about to begin his 20th year on the Supreme Court, stepped into the swing-vote role of the retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and proceeded to lay down the law for the court during the just completed 2005-06 term. He wrote several of the important decisions this past year and is expected to play a key role in the direction the court takes on major 2006-2007 cases involving the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, race as a factor in public school admissions, and California’s sentencing law.
