Two NU alumnae on Trump's shortlist for Justice Kennedy replacement

Justice Anthony Kennedy, a crucial swing vote on the United States Supreme Court, announced his retirement, throwing these senators into a precarious position as they face an expected vote on whether to confirm his replacement early this fall. Kethledge and Kavanaugh both served as clerks for Kennedy.

Kethledge is also not another Harvard Law or Yale Law attendee, and with eight of those remaining on the court-Ruth Bader Ginsburg got her J.D. from Columbia, but her first two years were spent in Cambridge-the University of Michigan Law School credential sends an important message to the country. That is notable for a court with six Catholics and three Jewish justices.

In these and many more cases, Kethledge has been faithful for more than a decade to the originalist approach.

"I think she's an excellent candidate", Paul says. Kethledge, of MI, serves on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Thirty years later, Tyler sought to have his right to purchase a gun, lost forever as a result having been in a mental hospital for 30 days in the 1980s, restored. But "the shoe is plainly on the other foot: It is now conservative judges who are supplanting the judgment of the people's representatives and substituting their own".

"The key insight", Sutton concluded, "is that no government may permanently deny rights based on generalizations stemming from classifications about any individual who once was institutionalized".

The president's top contenders include federal appeals court judges Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge, with federal appeals court judge Thomas Hardiman still considered in the mix. The conversation "seemed more like a check the box call than meaningful conversation" because Trump already has a shortlist of conservative nominees, a source told The Hill.

Mr. Trump is picking from a list of 25 names he compiled during the 2016 campaign and expanded as president.

"We are calling for a personal liberty standard", she continued. Her judicial philosophy is well known from her many academic writings, so she would not be a dreaded stealth nominee who would provoke conservative opposition. Nevertheless, if chosen, Democrats will certainly bring up the issue at his confirmation hearings, a guaranteed embarrassment for the president and his party.

In one of those cases, Kavanaugh dismissed his fellow judges for wanting to "decide these weighty and historic constitutional questions" for their reputation, arguing that the majority's decision to rule against Obamacare in this instance would break long-standing federal laws.

Coney Barrett, 46, was a law professor at Notre Dame Law School in IN before Trump appointed her to her current position in October. Spencer Abraham (R-Mich.), who was on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

But last week a political tornado barreled through her campaign and those of other red-state Democrats trying to keep their seats in a Senate that Republicans narrowly control. "And I think of the four people I have it down to three or two". Liberals had a miserable time using their exhausted playbook of attacks against Barrett's last confirmation because she has a compelling and compassionate life story. Barrett is a mother of seven children, including a special needs child and two children adopted from Haiti. Attempts to label her an "uncompassionate bigot" will fail. Conservatives should not be allowed to distract attention from the aspects of their agenda that would horrify even many who voted for Donald Trump.

Schumer also warned the president that nominating a jurist who would be hostile to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that established a woman's right to an abortion, and to Obama's health-care law would be "cataclysmic" and damage Trump's legacy, added the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.

Replacing Kennedy with a justice who shares Trump's extreme politics would leave millions of Americans more vulnerable to voting discrimination for generations.
