Breaking News: Elena Kagan reportedly to be nominated to be on the Supreme Court

The Washington Post is reporting tonight:

President Obama plans to nominate Solicitor General Elena Kagan to be the 112th justice of the Supreme Court, a source said late Sunday night.

Kagan, 50, the former dean of Harvard Law School, would become the fourth woman to serve on the high court; if confirmed, it would mean that three women would serve on the nine-member court for the first time.

The choice was first reported by NBC News.

There had been rumors of Kagan’s nomination earlier. I look forward to hearing more about the formal nomination tomorrow.
