John Roberts and Disability Law

Sam Bagenstos of the Disability Law Blog (a very informative and interesting blog) found a brief discussion on Judge John Roberts and his views on disability law.  Professor Bagenstos quotes the important part of that article as saying,

President Bush's nomination of John G. Roberts Jr. to the Supreme Court should concern people who care about disability rights. If he is confirmed, Roberts is likely to cast the swing vote against the ADA and disability rights.

Professor Bagenstos is not sure that this statement is correct given our limited knowledge of Judge John Roberts.  I must admit, I am becoming a little concerned about the Judge's nomination based on this Jonathan Turley L.A. Times piece and this flap over Federalist society membership.  [bm]
