Both Parties Prepare for Gorsuch Hearing Battle

Both Parties Prepare for Gorsuch Hearing Battle

While those documents unsurprisingly haven't made it before deadline - a trend with so many of Trump's appointees - Democrats have seen enough to know that they are opposed.

"Hopefully a week from Thursday, I'm able to tell you he [Gorsuch] has done such a good job in answering questions [at the confirmation hearings] that anyone would be embarrassed to take him on [vote against him]", the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Republican Chuck Grassley of Iowa, told VOA.

Nevertheless, Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland, a seemingly uncontroversial pick created to pressure Senate Republicans to cave. "Whether he will be a truly independent judge, whether he will apply the law fairly to all".

"His decisions are a bit of a mixed bag on immigration", said Melissa Crow, legal director of the American Immigration Council.

Playing on this theme, Schumer trotted out a bunch of sad cases that supposedly illustrated the heartlessness at the core of Gorsuch's ideology. This comes after their unprecedented partisan obstructionism, refusing a hearing or a vote on President Obama's nominee to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Antonin Scalia in February 2015, almost a full year before the end of the President's term.

Gold Prices at Pivotal Support Ahead of the Fed
Citizens of the Netherlands voted yesterday, Wednesday 15 March, and the outcome may have a huge impact on the exchange rate. He noted that only a few weeks before Wednesday's Fed announcement, expectations for a March hike were exceptionally low.

Judge Gorsuch summed up that switch as "effectively pulling out from petitioners like Mr. Gutierrez-Brizeula a rug that the agency itself set under them". It's the job of judges to rule on law.

Supreme Court nominee Neil Goruch will be confirmed within 60 days - with or without a Senate filibuster, Texas Sen.

Another attendee of the 2010 retreat was U.S. Sen. If Judge Gorsuch were simply pro-corporation, why that result?

Written with his customary accessible clarity, Gorsuch's opinion in the Caplinger case was one of hundreds he has authored since he joined the bench as a President George W. Bush appointee in 2006.

Blumenthal says he has some tough questions for Gorsuch, and that there is a very high bar for this Supreme Court nominee.

Interpol Lists Four North Koreans Wanted in Kim Murder: Malaysian Police
The killing has triggered a bitter row between Malaysia and North Korea, which have expelled each other's ambassadors. The three other North Korean suspects are hiding in the country's embassy in Malaysia, Malaysian police say.

Eliminating Chevron, he suggested, would allow citizens to "organize their affairs with some assurance that the rug will not be pulled from under them tomorrow, the next day, or after the next election".

Schumer appeared on Capitol Hill with several individual plaintiffs that Gorsuch ruled against in his position as a judge on the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

President Donald Trump announced his nomination of Tenth Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch at a prime-time news conference on January 31. They worry that doing away with Chevron would empower judges to gut regulations by overruling agency experts charged with enforcing protections for workers, as well as food, medicine, air and water. On all counts, Neil Gorsuch's record as a thoughtful legal scholar and consummate professional is crystal clear.

Neil Gorsuch does not belong on the Supreme Court. He unsuccessfully pushed for a rehearing, saying the appeals court should have respected a trial judge's conclusion that the governor was acting with a legitimate motive. Rosen, of the National Constitution Center, who clerked on an appellate court with Gorsuch, said that while Scalia could be "acerbic", Gorsuch was "an incredibly nice guy, warm and friendly".

To Mr. Goldberg, the case shows Judge Gorsuch was "willing to ignore court practice and custom" in an ideologically driven dispute to "defend an otherwise illegal act".

Special prosecutor: 'I won't make any pronouncements' about Loyd case
The law enforcement community was quick to slam Ayala and praise Scott's decision to remove her from Loyd's case. John Mina , the city's police chief, said he had spoken with Ayala and was "extremely upset" with her decision.

With the United States divided sharply between liberals and conservatives, ideological dominance of the Supreme Court, where justices serve for life, is a blue-ribbon prize, with an impact that can last for decades. In a politically polarized nation that had reelected a Democrat to the presidency in 2012 and then gave Senate control to the GOP in 2014, they were determined to let the people have another say regarding who would get to appoint the next justice.
