Buckeye President Comments on Gorsuch Nomination

Jan 31, 2017

Commenting on the appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, The Buckeye Institute's President Robert Alt said the following:

"Judge Neil Gorsuch's approach to the law is, well, judicious. Gorsuch has said that judges ought to declare what the law is, not what 'they might wish it to be in light of their own political views.' The commonsense of Gorsuch's judicial philosophy is refreshing in the overly politicized climate of Washington these days."

"Judge Neil Gorsuch is the kind of intellectually serious and exceedingly well-qualified judge everyone on both sides of the aisle should be able to support. He deserves an up or down vote."
