Trump to shift courts to the right with slate of appeals nominees

A statement Monday names judges John K. Bush of Kentucky and Joan Larsen of mi as nominees for the bench of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. The unusually high number of vacancies will allow him to remake the federal judiciary.

There is no way to assess whether they are conservative judges or conservative judicial activists, other than by the fact that they were chosen by the Federalist Society.

Schiff has also been a critic of the Obama administration's Clean Water Rule, past year testifying in front of a Senate subcommittee that the rule was an illegal expansion of the reach of the Clean Water Act (E&E Daily, May 25, 2016). Murphy, a Faribault native, is a former Minnesota District Court judge and served on the federal court since 1994.

Justice Joan Larsen of the Michigan Supreme Court and a former clerk for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia speaks at his memorial service at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., on March 1, 2016.

The Cincinnati-based 6th Circuit has jurisdiction over federal appeals arising from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. None of us outside the Court can know for sure, but there are important, interlocking reasons that counsel against Kennedy leaving the Court at this momentous point in our nation's history.

Damien Schiff will be nominated to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, Politico reported Monday. Trump was expected to announce Stras' nomination for the Eighth Circuit Monday, along with several other judicial appointments.

The massive opportunity allows Trump to shift the political imbalance now on our court system, which will be vital as left-leaning courts continually overrule him on his most important executive orders. Today, Trump is unveiling his first big group of judicial nominees, and they are awesome!

In his latest move to fill up the more than 120 vacancies on the federal court, President Donald Trump named 10 conservative nominees to the bench Monday.

Trump also tapped Magistrate Judge Terry Moorer of the Middle District of Alabama to become a judge on that same court. He was among 10 nominees for federal judgeships announced Monday. President Trump "is taking the next step in carrying out his campaign promise by appointing highly qualified and principled judges to the lower federal courts", Severino said. "Fulfilling this opportunity will require a steady stream of judicial nominations from the White House and a brisk pace of hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee". She has written four Michigan Supreme Court opinions since she first started serving on the bench in fall 2015.

Still, Committee for Justice President Curt Levey said Senate Democrats are likely to slow the confirmation process by exploiting debate time at a record level. Unlike the SCOTUS list, however, this group features not only sitting judges, but also law professors and practicing attorneys.

Most Democrats refused to support Gorsuch because they were still seething over the Republican blockade previous year of President Barack Obama's pick for the same seat, Merrick Garland.
