Potential Supreme Court Justices: Cass Sunstein

Nominee to head White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs; Professor, Harvard Law School,


Age: 54

Details: One of the nation's most prominent, wide-ranging and prolific legal scholars, Sunstein became a friend of Obama’s when both were teaching at the University of Chicago Law School and supported his presidential campaign. A politically active liberal who has lamented the "absence of anything like a heroic vision on the court's left," Sunstein also has an empirical, moderate side, sometimes questioning conventional liberal views. He clerked for Justice Thurgood Marshall. Last July, he married foreign policy expert Samantha Power, another Obama friend.
