The title of this post is the headline of an article by P.J. D’Annunzio in Thursday’s Legal Intelligencer. It includes this none-too-controversial observation: “Observers speculate that Trump will appoint more conservative judges—especially in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit—than his predecessor, President Barack Obama….”
The article notes that Pa. Senator Toomey is “especially unlikely to budge” on Rebecca Haywood’s nomination, and it features an interesting look at whether the blue-slip power will give fellow Pa. Senator Casey some leverage over Trump’s Third Circuit nominations. (I tilted at both of these windmills earlier this week.)
Well worth a read.
