NWLC Denounces Confirmation of Michael Brennan to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals

Posted on May 10, 2018 Issues: Judges & Courts Judicial Nominations

The following is a statement by Anna Chu, Vice President for Strategy and Policy at the National Women’s Law Center:

“The Trump-Pence Administration has been stacking the courts with extreme judges, and next in line is Michael Brennan. Brennan’s confirmation shows that Republican leadership is rubber-stamping President Trump’s extremist vision for the courts. That vision is particularly dangerous for women, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals. Senate Republicans rushed through Brennan’s nomination carelessly, torpedoing a critical, nearly century-old process to decide whether a judge is fit to serve in a lifetime position. And his confirmation moving forward without approval from his home state senator is an attack on Senators’ constitutional role in the judicial nominee process. We call on the Senate to stop this outrageous takeover of the courts and reject disturbing judges like Brennan.”
