Newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito Jr rigorously avoid sharing a personal point of view on most controversial issues that the court might confront, but not on one. He allowed, in response to a question from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-PA, that he had once argued in deliberations of his 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel that cameras should be allowed in the courtroom.
