The Justice Department has confirmed reports that Solicitor General Elena Kagan will not argue before the Supreme Court during its next argument cycle starting April 20, which is the final set of arguments for the current term. That means she won't be making her first argument before the Court until next term, which begins Oct. 5. Sources had indicated that Kagan was planning to argue April 29 in a high-profile Voting Rights Act case, but now it appears she is taking the go-slow approach.
