Here Come the Trump Judges

Kenny Thornton | 10 May, 2017, 14:33

Larsen, who during the presidential election campaign appeared on a list of potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court, will be nominated by President Donald Trump today to the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, the newspaper reported.

The Trump administration drew 10 appointments from the list of 21 potential Supreme Court nominees put together by the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation and that Mr. Trump issued during the campaign, but McGahn told The Times it is also referring to other sources as well.

Trump previously nominated U.S. District Judge Amul Thapar to serve on the 6th Circuit. If confirmed, Larsen of MI will serve as a Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Kevin Newsom of Alabama will be nominated as a circuit judge on the 11th Circuit.

Also nominated for federal court positions are David Nye of Idaho, Scott L. Palk of Oklahoma and Damien M. Schiff of California.

Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen has been nominated for a federal court seat by President Donald Trump. Gorsuch, 49, was confirmed last month. Instead, he is one of several apparently headed to the appeals court.

After the five judges are announced on Monday, the Trump administration will reportedly continue to periodically roll out even more conservative names until all of the vacancies are filled.

The New York Times first reported the President's plans. It would take congressional action to break up the 9th U.S. Circuit, and Republicans introduced bills this year to do just that.

Governor Rick Snyder says he's sorry to lose a Michigan Supreme Court justice, but that he supports her selection to the federal bench.

A Democratic majority in the Senate eliminated that chamber's filibuster for nominees to the district and circuit courts in 2013. McGahan said Trump was putting on "finishing touches" and that people "would be amazed" by the exceptionalness of the nominees.

Larsen has been on the Supreme Court since fall 2015. Only the most significant or divisive find their way to the high court, which has slashed its caseload in recent decades. Scalia's death in February 2016 left the Supreme Court with only eight members.

Stras, 42, would join a court that already is dominated by Republican nominees. Thapar is still waiting on a Senate confirmation vote to serve on the Sixth Circuit.

But one area where these nominations can have a huge impact is the federal courts.

US Magistrate Judge Terry Moorer, for the US District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. In states where Obama's judges had less influence, such as OH and Virginia, courts left restrictions on voting in place. "But at the same time, judges play a crucial role in safeguarding liberty and protecting the rights of all citizens". The Supreme Court's decision in June striking down abortion restrictions in Texas still leaves appeals courts with the job of deciding which types of limits to permit. "So, we can't have too many nominees".
