Former Clerk: Liberals Should Welcome Gorsuch
In an op-ed in the Washington Post today, Jason Murray of the Denver based law firm Bartlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott, says that Judge Gorsuch is similar to Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.
Murray, a former clerk to both Gorsuch and Kagan, states, "Both Gorsuch and Kagan consistently emphasized to us law clerks that, if we weren’t telling them when we thought their instincts on a case were wrong, we weren’t doing our jobs. For both, the goal was to reach the correct legal result, rather than advance any political party’s agenda. As Gorsuch has said, “A judge who likes every outcome he reaches is very likely a bad judge, stretching for results he prefers rather than those the law demands.”"
