Elena Kagan, President Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court, was involved in a number of issues concerning religious freedom according to documents released Friday, The New York Times reports.

President Bill Clinton's library in Little Rock, Ark., released about 42,000 pages of documents to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which currently is considering the Kagan nomination.

The documents came primarily from her 1995-96 work in the White House counsel’s office. It's the second collection released with one more planned before confirmation hearings commence later this month.

One religious-freedom issue included Kagan's role in drafting an executive order in a much-debated case regarding limits on federal employees talking about religion or displaying religious items in the workplace.

Another case concerned the government requiring a landlord to rent an apartment to an unwed couple, which violated the landlord’s religious beliefs.
