Is libertarian Influence Really Winning Over Supreme Court " Conservatives "

The Volokh Conspiracy looks at this assertion that was in a New Republic article. See  New Republic: “Libertarianism has won over the Supreme Court conservatives”

They throw in a few caveats though they do admit that Libertarianism  is getting some more respectability and influence in the academy.

My own contribution is it is important to recall that matters such as limited on Federal power via the Commerce clause and Federalism those are just not Libertarian concerns. I think overall as a whole conservatives from all areas have been contributing on that front.
