So far 3 Biden judges have been confirmed

all this past week. Hopefully the pace keeps up

Julien Xavier Neals in New Jersey

Regina M. Rodriguez in Colorado

Zahid N. Quraishi in New Jersey first Muslim federal judge in US history

And how many Trump judges were confirmed by this point in his first 6 months in office?

They’re moving TOO DAMN SLOW! There’s 80 fucking vacancies! Speed it up, Schumer!

4th judge today!

Ketanji Brown Jackson confirmed as DC circuit judge replacing Garland

hers was the closest vote so far. Only Collins, Graham and Murkowski joined the 48 Democrats and 2 Independents

this is on the appeals court which is of course quite important

by Anonymousreply 3June 15, 2021 3:18 AM

There are procedural steps to take first you crazed know-nothings. Trust me, the idea has been to fill these vacancies as quickly as possible, that's what we're seeing starting now!

As Lawrence O'Donnell just said on msnbc, Republicans are literally a heartbeat away from a Senate majority. Should a Dem Senator has a heart attack or something and is replaced by a Repug, hello Turtle.

There's not a minute to waste because you don't know what the next will bring.

Huh? The comment was about a judge that had been confirmed/ What do you mean "nominated" and "it’s years from now?"

by Anonymousreply 12June 17, 2021 4:03 AM

Qurashi is suppose to be adjudicating according to US laws, not his personal beliefs. And if it is found that his personal beliefs influence his rulings, then he should be speedily removed from the bench, all of his rulings vacated and he should be prosecuted.

by Anonymousreply 13June 17, 2021 4:15 AM

Why would a Muslim be any less likely to adjudicate according to US laws? The same charges were thrown at Catholics, who it was feared would be loyal first to Rome and not the US.

I don't want any pro religious person to be a fucking judge. That includes a Muslim! Don't care if you happen to have a faith, but if religion is a big enough part of your life to be included in, say, a self-description on a dating app? Fuck the hell off. You shouldn't be a judge.

How weird that liberals think that's some sort of good thing.

That said, big kudos to the other appointees. Keep 'em coming Joe.

by Anonymousreply 51September 21, 2021 7:01 AM

R50 not true. We mostly only hear about the cases the Supreme Court takes. There are so many cases that get ruled on at the lower levels and stop there, so judges at all levels matter. The repubs in the last 4 years really took advantage of all the openings McConnell held from the Obama years and rammed through over 200 right wing nutters which is horrible. It's crucial the Democrats fill every open seat by the midterms next year

by Anonymousreply 52September 21, 2021 8:08 AM

True up to a point, R52. But on the matters of greatest jurisprudential concern, including but not limited to reproductive rights, it’s the Supreme Court that establishes the controlling precedents.

Speaking of West Virginia, it’s quite something to realize that, as recently (in historic terms, that is) as 1980, it was only one of but six states that remained in the Democratic column in Reagan’s Electoral College landslide victory over Jimmy Carter (whose 97th birthday is on Friday).

Myrna Perez to be judge on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals by vote of 48-43

as you can see several senators were not in attendance to vote. This was by far the closet vote so far and I believe it's the first time Collins has not voted to confirm a Biden judicial nominee. All 48 votes were Democrats and all 43 no's were repubs

the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is unfortunately 1 of the courts in which Trump & McConnell were able to run amok and got 5 judges confirmed. Currently with today's confirmation there is a 6-6 split of left and right wing judges with 1 spot open for confirmation.
