Trump Passes Over PA Judge Hardiman for SCOTUS

Judge-Hardiman-2President Donald Trump announced this evening that 10th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch would be his nominee to the Supreme Court.  

Gorsuch beat out Pittsburgh-based Judge Thomas Hardiman for the nomination, after the two of them had been named to the final two.  Trump chose Gorsuch despite Hardiman receiving the endorsement of Trump’s sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry.

Hardiman may still be a contender for a future nomination later in Trump’s term. During the campaign, analysts said the next President could choose up to four new Justices.

  4. I think for he will be Donald trump’s next pick is to be the next US Supreme Court Judge.

  5. hmmm.. hardy man , the only federal district court nominee in the country to have been awarded ‘ not qualified ‘ / ‘not recommended’ by his own local bar association .. happens to be married to big steve zappala’s daughter lori zap — (whose own judicial career was crushed by ‘not qualified’ recommendations.. despite daddy’s influence.) this is the same big steve zap who lobbied the board of judges to appoint his son baby steve to the DA slot in pittsburgh over some very qualified career prosecutors . do we see a pattern here ?

  6. I grant that Hardiman offered some diversity of background as a first-generation college grad, but I wouldn’t say Georgetown Law would have made the court more educationally diverse. Having Justices who went to elite law schools is not a bad thing, so we should be striving for diversity of life background and experience rather than focusing on where someone got a three-year degree of which the substance is very similar across most schools.

  7. Trump did not pass over Hardiman, the person(s) who told him who to pick passed over Hardiman.

  8. It’s the politics of necessity. Trump was playing to the Evangelicals with his choice of Gorsuch. And so far they seem to be very happy with Trump’s nominee.

    I hope Hardiman has another chance at a SCOTUS seat, as he is eminently qualified. Trump is likely to fill another vacancy before 2020, and Hardiman could well be the nominee for that.

  9. The representative character of the legislature, and even arguably the executive, is important. The lack of such “diversity” on a multi-member appellate court is not and should not be of any concern. The law is the law. Judges read the law and give it effect. A judge’s capacity to do this has nothing to do with, for example, her unique experiences as “a wise Latina woman” or his attendance at Temple instead of Harvard.

  10. We need diversity on the court that is La Familia. We got double crossed and the prez is apparently a white guy who don’t like eyetalians. We will see about that when we all start voting democrat again.
