AFJAC Quoted on Trump Court Picks

An analysis at Huffington Post of the sharply dissimilar Supreme Court justices who would be selected by presidential rivals Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton quotes the Alliance for Justice Action Campaign about Trump’s list of potential picks.

“Collectively, these individuals reflect a radical-right ideology that threatens fundamental rights and legal protections, and that favors the powerful and privileged over everyday Americans, especially those from historically marginalized communities,” AFJAC said. “The list has very little diversity, with only three women, no people of color, and no one who has worked as a public defender or civil rights attorney.”

The Huffington Post analysis was written by Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and former president of the National Lawyers Guild; it was reprinted from Truthout.
