Justice Brett Kavanaugh is unlikely to heed calls by critics to step aside from politically charged SCOTUS cases. Reuters reports that SCOTUS could hear cases in which his fairness and independence might be questioned. U.S. law requires justices to step aside when there is a conflict of interest or genuine question of bias. It leaves the recusal decision in the hands of the individual justices. Democrats want Kavanaugh to recuse himself certain cases involving Trump himself. They also want him to step away from cases involving Democratic Party lawmakers or interests.
