Get used to hearing that name a lot over the next few decades because he is on the fast track to being our new Supreme Court Justice, appointed by Trump!
Trump made the appointment last month, and things are moving smoothly, even despite some democrats who want to stall and cause trouble.
Now the (very left-leaning) American Bar Association has even gotten involved to give Judge Gorsuch a “well qualified” rating! BOOM!
Confirmation hearings begin soon, on March 20.
Here is more, from Breitbart:
Notwithstanding its leftist political leanings, the American Bar Association (ABA) on Thursday gave Judge Neil Gorsuch a “well qualified” rating to serve as a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.
The ABA has three ratings for judicial nominees: not qualified, qualified, and well qualified. The ABA’s standing committee on the federal judiciary was unanimous in granting Gorsuch its highest rating.
Many non-lawyers do not know that the ABA is a private organization, with no governmental power or official status. Only 400,000 out of America’s 1.3 million lawyers—less than one-third—are ABA members.
Nevertheless, the ABA issues public ratings on judicial nominees. Although President George W. Bush briefly tried to discourage use of these ratings, Senate Democrats insisted on continuing to weigh those ratings when considering nominees to the federal bench.
Examples suggest that the ABA’s left-leaning ideology influences some of its judicial evaluations. However, Gorsuch has an extraordinary biography as a scholar (Ph.D. from Oxford as well as degrees for Harvard and Columbia Law School), former Supreme Court law clerk, senior Justice Department official, private litigator, and federal appeals judge. As such, experts widely expected he would receive the highest marks.
