|Judge Neil Gorsuch|
President Trump has nominated Neil Gorsuch, a judge on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, for the vacancy on the U. S. Supreme Court. If confirmed, what affect will Judge Gorsuch have on the Court especially in the areas of free speech and religious freedoms?
We’ll try to answer that question tomorrow when John G. Malcolm, a senior follow at the Heritage Foundation returns to FOT. John is also director of the Heritage’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies.
Before being named director of the Meese Center in July 2013, John spearheaded the center’s rule of law programs. His research and writing as senior legal fellow focused on criminal law, immigration, national security, religious liberty and intellectual property.
The Meese Center works to educate government officials, the media and the public about
the Constitution and legal principles
-- and how they affect public policy. The center was founded in 2001 and
overseen until early 2013 by the conservative icon whose name it bears, former
Attorney General Edwin Meese III.
