    Perhaps as a politician needing votes Sutherland was a moderate progressive. On workers’ comp, his position may have been based upon special circumstances of workers in Utah. Perhaps his shift from the Mormon Church led to his progressiveness, at least temporarily. But on the Court, his situation was different, with a lifetime appointment. Perhaps his progressiveness was merely a matter of convenience.

    The trajectory you describe may be real, but without more explanation about what the terms progressive and conservative mean in this context, the quote is ambiguous. It may plausibly be read as expressing a conservative sentiment.
