Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) applauded President Donald Trump’s nomination of Colorado native Neil Gorsuch as the next Supreme Court justice for the United States.  Judge Gorsuch currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.  Gorsuch received his undergraduate degree from Columbia University and attended Harvard Law School on a Truman Scholarship.  Gorsuch was nominated to his current post by President George W. Bush in 2006.  

Congressman Brooks said, “President Donald Trump has selected excellent cabinet and staff members and his Supreme Court nomination is no exception.  Judge Neil Gorsuch will make a terrific U.S. Supreme Court justice.”

Brooks concluded, “Too many of our justices have succumbed to the vanity and arrogance of creating new law through judicial edict.  I have the utmost respect for Judge Gorsuch’s commitment and record of ruling on issues before his court based on rational interpretation of the original intent of the Constitution or law, regardless of his personal opinions.  Judge Gorsuch’s commitment to this fundamental legal philosophy is absolutely essential to preserving the rule of law in our democratically elected representative government, and I look forward to his swift confirmation.”
