SCOTUS Receives High Honors

On January 31st president Trump formally announced his choice for the supreme court vacancy, Neil Gorsuch. Judge Gorsuch is a very well known American appellate judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. HE’s very decorated and well respected within his field. Having earned his BA at Columbia University, his JD at Harvard University and his DPhil at University College, Oxford, he’s gotten some of the most impressive college credentials you can hope for. Simply put: he knows all aspects of the law in great depth and detail.

On Thursday it was reported that the American Bar Association had made a verdict on judge Gorsuch by holding a vote on his qualifications to serve on the Supreme Court. Gorsuch got a unanimous “well qualified”, which is the highest honor that can voted to a judge. This was just the next step in Gorsuch’s pursuit to filling the vacant seat left behind by judge Antonin Scalia.

Chuck Schumer has already made it public that he plans to try and make the process very long and grueling for Gorsuch, for no apparent reason other than he wants to continue to cry and pout like the rest of the left has since Trump was elected president in November.

American Bar Association Gives Neil Gorsuch Highest Possible Rating For SCOTUS

The American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary voted unanimously to rate Neil Gorsuch as “well qualified” to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States.

“Well qualified” is the best possible rating a Supreme Court nominee can receive from the ABA.

The ABA announced the vote Thursday in a letter to Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, respectively.

Grassley celebrated the letter on Twitter, saying Gorsuch is “well on his way to [the] Supreme Court.”

“The ABA Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary has completed its evaluation of the professional qualifications of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, whom the President has nominated to the United States Supreme Court. As you know, the Committee confines its evaluation to the qualities of integrity, professional competence, and judicial demeanor,” the letter states.

“After an exhaustive evaluation process, the Committee has determined by unanimous vote that Judge Gorsuch is ‘Well Qualified’ for the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.”

Trump nominated Gorsuch on January 31 to fill the seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has already indicated he will drag out the confirmation process for Gorsuch.

President Trump previously urged Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to use the nuclear option to prevent a filibuster of Gorsuch’s nomination if needed.
