Southern University Law Professor Michelle Ghetti joined Scott McKay and Brian Haldane this week to talk about Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Ghetti takes the guys through the background of who Gorsuch is as a jurist and what the American people can expect from him should he be confirmed. She looks at previous cases he has handled, where his opinions have come down, and what leanings he has.
They also take a deep dive into what kind of fight President Trump can expect when it comes to getting his nominee confirmed. THough Gorsuch is essentially filling Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat, there is some bad blood that former President Obama didn’t get his pick to be Scalia’s successor. Ghetti gives her opinion on how much she thinks that will come into play in the coming months. She also sounds off on, not only whether or not there will be a filibuster to oppose Gorsuch, but what type of filibuster may be utilized.
