(CNSNews.com) - Forty-nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives--including the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, the chairman of the Republican Policy Committee and two presidential candidates--are pointing to evidence they say is "contradictory" to Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan's confirmation testimony and calling for the House Judiciary Committee to investigate the matter.

The lawmakers also say they believe that evidence already made public shows that Kagan must recuse herself from any court cases involving the health care bill signed into law by President Barack Obama while she was serving as Obama's solicitor general.

It dawns on me, in the short term, there is only one way to force a justice to recuse him or herself, the peer pressure of the other justices. You can seek dis-barment if lying under oath can be proven or impeachment but both choices would take a year or more. Dis-barment would only shame a justice, not remove them as there's no requirement that a justice must be an attorney.
