NYT Opposes Southwick

by Jonathan H. Adler

Today the New York Times editorializes against Bush Administration nominee Leslie Southwick.  According to the Times:

Judge Southwick’s judicial record also shows the usual pattern of President Bush’s judicial nominees: insensitivity toward workers, consumers and people injured by corporations. The federal appeals courts are already overloaded with judges who hold these biases.

The NYT wants Senate Democrats to reject Southwick and force the President to nominate a “more moderate” nominee.  The Senate Judiciary Committee has already postponed consideration of Southwick’s nomination once, and is scheduled to consider it again on Thursday.
