As you have doubtless heard by now, President Trump has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch, of our very own Tenth Circuit, to fill the Supreme Court seat held by Justice Antonin Scalia until his death last February.
About five years ago I began a practice of reading every Judge Gorsuch opinion because they are so well-written. The impression I’ve formed of him is that he’s incredibly brilliant, impartial, serious, and devoted to the Constitution.
Here’s a roundup of links about this nomination. Naturally, conservatives are more enthusiastic about Judge Gorsuch than liberals (the latter probably disagree with Judge Gorsuch’s jurisprudence, and are unhappy with how Senate Republicans treated President Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland). But I’ll post links from all sides that I can find (if you know of any that I’ve missed and should include here, please e-mail me!):
