An ideological conservative, Kennedy has frequently been the swing vote in high-profile cases, including , the Court’s landmark 2015 decision to uphold the legality of gay marriage in all 50 states. Kennedy also cast the deciding vote in the controversial 2010 case, which prohibited restrictions on independent campaign finance expenditures.
