Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr. has hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in stocks, money market funds and mutual funds, many of them handled by Vanguard, the company at the center of a conflict-of-interest complaint leveled by some of his opponents.

Alito, an appellate court judge for 15 years, has money invested in more than a dozen Vanguard funds, according to his financial disclosure report for 2004, released yesterday by the Senate Judiciary Committee.


When Alito was named to the appellate court in 1990, he told the Senate he would not rule in cases involving Vanguard, to avoid any possible conflict of interest. But in 2002, he ruled in a routine case that benefited Vanguard. When the losing party complained, Alito recused himself, and another panel of judges reheard the case and again ruled in Vanguard's favor.
