James Sample, a Hofstra University law professor who has studied Supreme Court recusals, said, “It’s very reasonable to ask a Supreme Court nominee for a more thorough answer” about how he will weigh such decisions, especially since “it seems as though there is a kind of continuous relationship — this is not just a past client.”

Charlie Savage reported from Washington, and Julie Turkewitz from Granby, Colo. Mike McIntire contributed reporting from New York.
