Default Neil Gorsuch: Everything You Need to Know


Quote:
Libertarian legal giant Randy Barnett says Trump's Supreme Court nominee is a serious, smart guy. But will he restrain government?

Barnett, Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory and Director Georgetown Center for the Constitution, sat down with Reason TV to weigh in on Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme court.

Barnett said he was cautiously optimistic about Gorsuch. "Of all the people on [Trump's] list, he was certainly near the top," Barnett said.

He said Gorsuch seems to be well read, smart, and a staunch defender of originalism like Justice Scalia.

"There's the old 'framers intent,' which people say if they don't know what they're talking about," Barnett said. "Gorusch says 'original public meaning,' which means he knows what he's talking about."

Barnett said he believes the addition of Gorsuch to the Supreme court could have a significant impact on whether or not a reinterpretation of abortion rights is in the future.

"Roe v. Wade is not settled," Barnett said. "Could [a decision] happen? I think it could... in the sense that it's been contested since it was decided. As a result I can seem them undoing it and sending it back to the states."

Neil Gorsuch: Everything You Need to Know
This is pretty much all you need to know:

American Bar Association gives Neil Gorsuch its highest rating for the Supreme Court – TheBlaze

Quote:
The American Bar Association declared this week that Judge Neil Gorsuch is “well-qualified” to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, giving President Donald Trump’s pick to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia the group’s highest rating.

The ABA’s standing committee on the federal judiciary reached the decision unanimously, according to Chairwoman Nancy Scott Degan, who informed Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the committee’s ranking member, in a letter Thursday.

Grassley offered a glowing statement in response to the group’s announcement:

The ABA’s ringing endorsement is no surprise given Judge Gorsuch’s sterling credentials and his distinguished decade-long record on the Tenth Circuit. Former Chairman [Patrick] Leahy and Minority Leader [Chuck] Schumer have called the ABA’s assessment the “gold standard” in evaluating federal judicial nominations. In light of Judge Gorsuch’s impeccable record, it’s hard to imagine any other result from the ABA’s consideration.

Neil Gorsuch is answering questions today. Dick Blumenthal was on NPR this AM expressing his anger about Merrick Garland. This process will drawn out.

That ugly bias hag Feinstein is asking moronic q's right now.

She also thinks Trump will resign soon. That tells you how in touch with reality she is.

Lots of Democrats think this.

They are all out of touch with reality.

A female law student, Jennifer Sisk, wrote a letter saying Gorsuch is sexist. He was defended by other students. I don't expect an Anita Hill fiasco.

Watching hearings on C-Span.
Another panel has been assembled both pro and con but I guess we already know what Schumer wants to do. Can Gorsuch get 60 votes in spite of Schumer's pledge of obstruction?
