Justice Scalia’s Actual and Ideological Replacement: Tenth Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch Nominated to United States Supreme Court
- Written by The Saqui Law Group
President Donald Trump has selected Tenth Circuit Court of Appeal Judge Neil Gorsuch as his nominee to replace deceased Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court. Should Judge Gorsuch pass confirmation (which is expected), he will fill the year-long vacancy that has existed since the passing of Justice Scalia in February 2016.
Judge Gorsuch, 49, has served on the Tenth Circuit since 2006, and was a former United States Supreme Court clerk. Judge Gorsuch is most frequently compared to Justice Scalia, both for his intelligence, sharp, conversational writing style, and belief that judges should follow the text and original meaning of the Constitution.
