President Donald Trump announced his Brett Kavanaugh as his pick for the Supreme Court on Monday evening. Kavanaugh, 53, is a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Of course, health experts have been searching through his former cases like tea leaves to offer a glimpse at where he might land on some of the most pressing healthcare issues—including challenges to Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act. Kavanaugh has established himself as a voice to be listened to with a number of his opinions adopted by the court, said Aaron Nielson, an associate professor of law at Brigham Young University in a blog for the Yale Journal on Regulation in a collection of his opinions.
