About "Neil Gorsuch"
This week’s first resolution raises an interesting comparison between Justice Neil Gorsuch and the bench he filled, that of the late Antonin Scalia. Gorsuch’s first “go” through Supreme Court decisions show a justice that is more like Thomas than Scalia. The Wall Street Journal opined, “[Justice] Thomas, the consistent originalist, seems to have found a fellow traveler in Justice Gorsuch.” Extempers should be well-versed in understanding how Gorsuch has impacted the Court’s latest decisions.
Other topics this week include James O’Keefe’s CNN videos, Merkel’s recent criticism of Trump, Theresa May’s unexpected parliamentary victory, Cardinal Pell’s sex-abuse scandal, and more.
