Dem Sen. Kamala Harris: Gorsuch Too Judicial To Be SCOTUS Judge
Wicked Witch Oh The West!  

During the opening statement of his confirmation hearing, Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch expressed his philosophy on how a good judge reaches decisions::

I’ve ruled for disabled students, for prisoners, for the accused, for workers alleging civil rights violations, and for undocumented immigrants. Sometimes, too, I ruled against such persons. My decisions have never reflected a judgment about the people before me, only a judgment of the law and the facts at issue in each particular case.

A good judge can promise no more than that. And a good judge should guarantee no less. For a judge who likes every outcome he reaches is probably a pretty bad judge, stretching for policy results he prefers rather than those the law compels.

In other words, for Gorsuch, a good judge bases his rulings on the law as it is, not on how he or she wishes it was.

As Senator Chuck Grassley put it ,

“He’s a guy who I think comes to the court every day on the 10th circuit wearing a referee’s jersey – not trying to wear a Broncos versus a Packers jersey – and that’s what you need in a judge.”

Good enough, right?
