A Principled Reason to Oppose the Confirmation of Neil GorsuchACSBLOG (2017)
This essay argues that, without regard to the legal or jurisprudential views of Judge (now Justice) Neil A. Gorsuch, Senators could legitimately oppose his confirmation to avoid rewarding Senate Republicans’ 2016 refusal to consider the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to fill a Supreme Court vacancy. The actions of Senate Republicans were unprecedented and highlighted the growing dysfunction of our system for choosing Supreme Court Justices.
