President Trump just released a slate of 16 judicial nominations for the federal bench, including a nominee for the “nutty” Ninth Circuit Court whose opinions have been routinely reversed by the Supreme Court.
President Donald Trump submitted another slate of judicial nominees to the Senate Thursday, naming candidates to the powerful federal appeals courts based in Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, California.
The White House announced that Trump has named Gregory Katsas to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the nation’s second most powerful judicial panel, and Ryan Bounds to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the West Coast appeals court and primary antagonist of the early days of the Trump presidency.
Among judicial nominees submitted to the Senate Thursday is President Donald Trump’s first nominee for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the country’s largest appellate court, which has continually stymied administration priorities.
