President Trump Announces Supreme Court Nomination

On Tuesday, January 31st President Donald Trump announced his selection for the Supreme Court.  Judge Neil Gorsuch-10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver  is nominated to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the court after his death last year. Democrats have promised a thorough and potentially difficult nomination process.

According to the Wall St. Journal Judge Gorsuch, 49 years old, is a Colorado native with a conservative record. He has been a vocal advocate for judicial humility, saying courts shouldn’t intrude into the policy-making functions of the legislative and executive branches. He has also been critical of overreach by the executive branch.

President George W. Bush nominated him to the Denver-based 10th Circuit in 2006. He then joined the judiciary after two years in the Bush Justice Department and a decade in private practice at a Washington firm.

Gorsuch has been a vocal defender of religious liberty, including by siding with business owners who, citing their religious beliefs, objected to an Obama administration requirement that they provide contraception coverage to their workers.
