Reason Magazine’s Barton Hinkle carefully analyzed the judicial record of Merrick Garland, the D.C. judge nominated by President Obama to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court. See here.
Garland has been widely described in the pro-government media as “moderate.” This, according to Hinkle, means that Garland tends to rule for the government and against the private sector on business or property cases, and also tends to rule for the government on law enforcement cases.
Reason Magazine perfectly nails the real description of Garland. He is a pro-government extremist.
