ACLJ TO SENATE: CONFIRM JUDGE GORSUCH

1490019317639

(Washington, DC) - The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) said today the confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit before the Senate Judiciary Committee represents a critical time for the Supreme Court and the nation.

“Judge Gorsuch is exceedingly qualified to fill the seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, who has appeared before the Supreme Court in numerous cases.  “Judge Gorsuch embraces the Constitution and the rule of law. The obstructionists are vowing to oppose this nominee because of his conservative judicial philosophy. It is time for this confirmation process to move forward and we’re calling on the Senate to confirm Judge Gorsuch without delay.”

Judge Gorsuch was approved by a voice vote by the Senate when he was appointed to the federal appeals court by President George W. Bush. If Senate Democrats attempt to filibuster Judge Gorsuch, President Trump has said that he is in favor of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell using the so-called “nuclear option” – which was first used by Democrats – to constitutionally change the rules of the Senate requiring a simple majority of 51 votes – instead of the 60 now required – to confirm a Supreme Court nominee.

The ACLJ has launched a national media campaign to advocate for the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.  The ACLJ has more than one million members and will utilize radio, television, online and social media to urge the Senate to act without delay and confirm Judge Gorsuch. Nearly 130,000 people have signed on to an ACLJ petition demanding his confirmation.

Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, is based in Washington, D.C.
