We all know about Justice Gorsuch on the Supreme Court, but now President Trump is beginning to leave his mark on the federal courts. On Monday, he nominated 10 young conservative scholars and judges to serve on the federal bench.
“They all appear to be bright, young, capable conservatives who promise to be outstanding judges; some are already judges,” John Malcolm, a legal scholar who oversees the Institute for Constitutional Government at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal earlier in the day.
Two of the appeals court nominees—Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen (pictured above on left), 48, nominated to the 6th Circuit, and Minnesota Supreme Court Justice David Stras, 44, (pictured above on right) nominated to the 8th Circuit—were on a list of 21 contenders for the U.S. Supreme Court that the Trump campaign released months ago….
Trump also nominated Amy Coney Barrett (pictured above in middle) 45, a law professor at Notre Dame and former law clerk for the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, for the 7th Circuit, and Louisville lawyer John K. Bush, 53, for the 6th Circuit.
