Senate Legislative Update for May 2, 2014

As a result of the “nuclear option” that Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) implemented last year, the Senate continues to hastily push through judicial nominations.

Monday, the Senate approved the nomination of Michelle T. Friedland for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Despite the almost impossible battle of stopping this nomination (because of the “nuclear option” leaving Democrats with the ability to pass through judicial nominees with no bi-partisan support), Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC ) could not be silent on this nominee’s record.

Miss Friedland’s record raises serious questions about her judicial philosophy, especially when it comes to the proper role of a judge. With the types of cases coming before the courts today, it is important to make sure each judge upholds current law and does not rule based on personal philosophy.
