Thursday Gavel Grab Briefs

In these other dispatches about fair and impartial courts:

  • As another installment in a series, the Associated Press published an article entitled, “How to fix ‘massive crisis’ in immigration courts.”
  • The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the controversial judicial nomination of law professor Goodwin Liu for the third time in a year, although his Republican critics were unforgiving about Liu’s criticisms of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, the Blog of Legal Times reported. The panel also approved the nomination of Paul Oetken for a district court judgeship in New York (see Gavel Grab for articles about Liu or Oetken).
  • “‘Advice and consent’ means voting, not obstructing,” declared the headline for a Fort Worth Star-Telegram editorial about the judicial nomination of John J. McConnell of Rhode Island, and the posture of Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, regarding it.
