The trucker case, and why it matters

The trucker case, and why it matters

No one is calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to deny Judge Gorsuch a hearing or for Democrats to boycott that hearing. Judge Gorsuch specifically targeted females and maternity leave.

How does the confirmation process work?

Pat Toomey do not serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is holding the hearing. "His track record shows that he would not be a mainstream Supreme Court Justice". Grassley won reelection with 60 percent of the vote.

Sens. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., and Cory Gardner, R-Colo., as well as former acting U.S. Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, will introduce Gorsuch to the committee. There are 46 Democrats and two independents who tend to vote with them. It is unclear if the GOP would be able to stand united enough to make the nuclear option happen. They'd rather not go this route.

That last resort would mean changing Senate rules to make any filibuster of Gorsuch impossible.

Another issue Democrats plan to raise is judicial independence and Trump's disparagement of judges who have ruled against him.

Why is this such a battle?

A well-known Obama alumnus, in addition to both of Colorado's US Senators, including Democrat Michael Bennet. He was President Obama's pick to replace Scalia.

Some liberals are angry and bitter that Garland didn't get his shot, and feel like the seat was stolen from them.

"They don't have any good arguments against Gorsuch, but they're furious that we're going to have a conservative nominated and confirmed". They haven't committed to blocking or supporting Gorsuch. "'Gorsuch's nomination represents an imminent threat to America's most cherished rights and most vulnerable citizens, and millions of Americans across the country are demanding that Democratic leadership use everything in their power to block it, ' the alliance said". Sisk was told that administrators would speak to Gorsuch about the matter at the end of the term but she is uncertain if they followed through. The company fired him for leaving a tractor trailer behind to seek help after the vehicle became inoperable in subzero temperatures. According to the U.S.

How will Republicans defend Gorsuch?

Gorsuch's nomination has been cheered by Republicans and praised by some left-leaning legal scholars.

"The judge's job, our nominee says, is to deliver on the promise that 'all litigants, rich or poor, mighty or meek, will receive equal protection under the law and due process for their grievances, '" said Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican.

Gorsuch Enters Partisan Divide in Senate Confirmation Bid
During an interview that night with Radio Iowa, Grassley called Gorsuch a "principled, mainstream conservative". At Gorsuch's hearings, senators must question him closely about these issues, which affect everyone.

His nomination is withdrawn by Trump. He met privately with 72 senators. Blumenthal said he had prepared "tough but respectful" questions for hearings this week.

He reviewed his rulings to refresh his memory, knowing he'll be asked to explain and even defend some of them.

This week's Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals judge Neil Gorsuch will more than like be dominated by dueling narratives representing very different ideas of the threshold he should have to cross to ascend to SCOTUS.

Neither will get a chance to do so until Gorsuch's nomination hits the Senate floor, since Democratic Sen.

The 49-year-old judge also has the political math on his side.

What's at stake for Trump?

"Indeed, his conservative pedigree is the reason he was picked".
