Another Nominations Blog

by Jonathan H. Adler

Another blog devoted to judicial nominations is “Students for the Judiciary.” According to the site description, the blog is part of “a non-partisan student-led campaign to provide objective information on judges under consideration for lifetime appointments to the federal judiciary. We are committed to the ideal of an independent judiciary and believe that judicial nominees should be able to divorce their personal political opinions from their ability to interpret the Constitution. As such, qualified nominees should be able to secure a broad base of political support.”
There’s reason to be skeptical about this group’s neutrality, however, as it grew out of the “Filibuster for Democracy” campaign that sponsored FilibusterFrist.com.
