Samuel A. Alito
Samuel A. Alito, 55
A strong conservative voice in his 15 years on the Philadelphia-based 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals, which legal observers consider to be among the most liberal. He has been dubbed "Scalito" or "Scalia-lite" by some lawyers because his judicial philosophy invites comparisons to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
