Law professors weigh in on the Supreme Court nominee and confirmation process
Yale Law School professor E. Donald Elliott doesn’t share the same judicial philosophy as Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, but he believes that President Trump’s selection is “as good as it possibly gets” — as far as conservative judges go.
Elliot, an adjunct professor of law, expressed that view in a Feb. 6 Wall Street Journal commentary. He is one of a number of Yale legal scholars who have publicly weighed in on the qualifications of Gorsuch, a judge on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, or on the confirmation process itself.
