The Judicial Confirmation Process: Appointing Constitutionalist Judges

RSS Feed

January 13, 2020

Last year, the Committee for Justice continued to play an influential role in holding judges and politicians accountable to the constitution. We worked to reclaim the judiciary from activist judges, confront the unaccountable administrative state, and oppose calls to restructure the Supreme Court.

Still, it likely will take years to fully evaluate whether Mr. Trump truly transformed the 9th Circuit, said Curt Levey, president of the Committee of Justice, which promotes constitutionalist positions on legal and policy issues. He noted that most senior Republican-appointed judges aren’t as conservative as Mr. Trump’s picks because senators used to be able to block federal appeals court nominees.

Kavanaugh's keynote address represents an indication that he feels less of a need to keep a low profile.

The overt smears of Lawrence VanDyke and the continued mistreatment of conservative-leaning judicial nominees by the ABA is reprehensible. The ABA should no longer have a privileged place at the table in assessing judicial nominations.

The ABA has rated Ms. Pitlyk’s nomination negatively. This calls into question the organization’s fairness, as well as the overall consistency of their ratings. The ABA has been happy to give qualified or well-qualified ratings to nominees who have demonstrated far less litigation experience than Sarah Pitlyk.

The judges, as well as the California attorney general, are legitimate candidates for the high court, said Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, a conservative legal group. Otherwise, he said, it’s largely just a wish list.

While he thinks Justice Kavanaugh could uphold some limitations on abortion, Mr. Levey is doubtful the newest justice would be a solid vote to overturn outright Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark ruling legalizing abortion nationwide.

The advocacy group The Committee for Justice on Monday denounced The New York Times for its story on allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Their embarrassing overreach could have been avoided had they bothered to read the Times piece, which openly relied on hearsay provided by anonymous sources concerning a supposed witness who just happened to be an adversary of Kavanaugh during the Ken Starr investigation. Likewise if the would-be presidents had, like others, requested an advance copy of the book on which the story is based. The book reveals that the alleged victim has no memory of the incident.

Please join the Arlington/Falls Church Young Republicans on Monday, September 16th, at Summers Restaurant in Courthouse. Our guest speaker will be Ashley Baker, policy director at the Committee for Justice. Ashley will discuss the Supreme Court’s last term and offer a preview of the term that begins in October, as well as current topics related to the federal judiciary.

When McConnell declared that he would not allow confirmation hearings for any Supreme Court nominee until after the presidential election it was an unprecedented move in US history. "He came up with the idea very quickly, within hours of Scalia passing away, and he implemented it brilliantly," says Curt Levey, president of conservative advocacy group the Committee for Justice. "It was very impressive."

Levey said Whitehouse’s brief [in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York] was “an overt threat and it is coming from a fairly radical group of Democratic senators who hate the fact that the Supreme Court is center-right at the moment.”

August 12, 2019

Many Democratic-nominated judges who could be eligible to retire before the election will probably hold on in case a Democrat wins the White House, said Curt Levey, president of the conservative Committee for Justice in Washington. “Just about all of the Democratic appointees will avoid retiring as long as possible, so you’ll be replacing Republican appointees with Republican appointments,” Levey said.

It’s worth mentioning the huge impact the protesters had on the day-to-day life of the Kavanaugh family, who were arguably the biggest victims in this latest chapter of judicial confirmation mayhem. If “much of the book is like looking into a fun house mirror,” the reader must be severely out of touch with the millions of Americans who watched this spectacle.

Republicans did what they had to do to fight back. What they did was somewhat measured. They had the votes to change the rules for circuit court nominees too and they didn’t.
