Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court Nominee – Watch the LEFT MELTDOWN over Donald Trump’s SCOTUS pick.
Neil McGill Gorsuch (born August 29, 1967) is an American judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
On January 31, 2017, President Donald Trump nominated Gorsuch to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, to fill the seat left vacant after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Gorsuch is a proponent of originalism and textualism in interpreting the U.S. Constitution.
Gorsuch clerked for Judge David B. Sentelle on the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit from 1991-1992. And then for United States Supreme Court Justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy from 1993-1994. Gorsuch had been a Deputy Associate Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice since 2005. From 1995-2005, Gorsuch was in private practice with the law firm of Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel. Gorsuch graduated from the Georgetown Preparatory School and received a B.A. from Columbia University. He was the founder and first chief editor of alternative newspaper The Fed and won a Truman Scholarship. He earned his J.D. from Harvard Law School and Doctorate of Legal Philosophy from Oxford University.
Gorsuch was nominated by President George W. Bush on May 10, 2006 to replace Judge David M. Ebel, who took Senior status in 2006. Gorsuch was confirmed by voice vote by the U.S. Senate on July 20, 2006. Gorsuch was Bush’s fifth appointment to the Tenth Circuit. His first book, The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia, was published by Princeton University Press in July 2006. In 2017, he was nominated to replace the late-Antonin Scalia’s seat at the SCOTUS by President Donald Trump.
In September 2016, during the U.S. presidential election, then-candidate Donald Trump included Gorsuch, as well as his circuit colleague Timothy Tymkovich, in a list of 21 current judges whom Trump would consider nominating to the Supreme Court if elected. In January 2017, after President Trump took office, unnamed Trump advisers listed Gorsuch in a shorter list of eight of those names, who they said were the leading contenders to be nominated to replace the seat vacated by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
On January 31, 2017, President Trump announced his nomination of Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Since Gorsuch is 49 years old at his appointment, Gorsuch is the youngest nominee to the Supreme Court since 1992.
Gorsuch and his wife, Louise, have two daughters, Emma and Belinda, and live in Boulder, Colorado.
He enjoys being outdoors and fly fishing. He raises horses, chickens, and goats, and often arranges ski trips with colleagues and friends.
He has authored two books. His first book, The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia, was published by Princeton University Press in July 2006. He is also one of 12 co-authors of The Law of Judicial Precedent, published by Thomson West in 2016.
