Kagan expected to be confirmed to the Supreme Court

Elena Kagan is expected to be confirmed as the 112th justice to the Supreme Court Thursday - and could be sworn into her judicial
post by week's end.

On Wednesday, the influential Mexican American Legal Defense Fund decided not to endorse the 50-year-old solicitor general and to remain "neutral."

"This rare decision comes because Kagan's record as an attorney is too ambiguous for MALDEF to make an informed determination about her current knowledge and potential understanding of Latino legal concerns," the group's president, Thomas Saenz, wrote in a commentary written for the online news site the Huffington Post.
