Battle Over Federal Judicial Nominations Continues

In addition to focusing on judicial nominations this week, our Washington, DC, office is busy preparing a brief to the Supreme Court of the United States on the Oregon assisted-suicide case.  In this case, the state of Oregon authorized the use of federally controlled substances to end life.  This is an illegitimate use of these legal drugs.  The United States Department of Justice has challenged the state of Oregons attempts at assisted suicide, and the American Center for Law and Justice is filing a brief on behalf of members of the Senate and the House who are opposed to this use of federally controlled substances.  Walter Weber, Senior Counsel for the ACLJ, and Paul Larkin, Special Appellate Counsel for the ACLJ, are working on this important brief. 

 

The battle over federal judicial nominations continues to heat up here in Washington.  In order to keep you posted, I encourage you to listen to our radio broadcast each day, as I bring live updates from our nations capital on this issue.  Also, our legislative staff has begun an aggressive campaign with members of the Senate concerning the ending of the filibuster.  Last week, I met with Senators Brownback, Coburn and Collins along with a number of senior staff from a variety of Senate offices on this important issue.  We will also be airing a special on judicial filibusters this afternoon at 5 p.m. on Trinity Broadcasting Network.  I encourage you to listen in. 

 

Our Midwest office is busy working on the Illinois pharmacists case.  Last week, we filed suit against the state of Illinois, which is compelling pharmacists to dispense drugs like RU-486 which produce abortions.  Our clients are added to a growing list of pharmacists who are refusing to prescribe this drug that produces an abortion.  I will keep you posted as the state of Illinois prepares its response.
