Trump Responds to Kennedy’s Retirement: We’ll Begin Search for New Justice ‘Immediately’

US Supreme Court Approves Trump's Travel Ban

His departure sets the stage for President Trump to nominate a second Supreme Court justice after successfully nominating Justice Neil Gorsuch to the bench previous year. He has cast multiple votes both protecting legal abortion and affirming the homosexual agenda, though he has also signaled openness to some abortion restrictions.

It should worry us that these judges are at the head of the line for appointment to a court where the future of health care and environmental protection, along with the rights of women, people of color, LGBTQ people, workers and consumers are literally on the line. "He's been a great justice for the Supreme Court".

Check out Trump's full short list here.

With U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy set to retire next month, President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he plans to promptly start the process of selecting a successor for the high court's bench.

Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Bob Young, Jr.

Kennedy is a traditional conservative who sometimes joined the liberal justices on key rulings, earning a reputation as the court's "swing" vote who heartened conservatives and liberals alike, depending on the issue.

Brooks Koepka wins second straight U.S. Open
A year after shooting 16 under to win at Erin Hills by four strokes, Koepka repeated in the challenging conditions at Shinnecock. "Koepka's one fescue shot away from not winning", he said just before the eventual victor birdied the 16th, a 616-yard par 5.

It's also possible that Roberts appears more liberal because, as the chief justice, he has an incentive to join the majority in cases where his vote alone can not change the decision; this tactic allows him to influence decisions he doesn't fully agree with, rather than simply dissenting. "As a result, it is my view that if a Supreme Court Justice resigns tomorrow, or within the next several weeks, or resigns at the end of the summer, President Bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not - and not - name a nominee until after the November election is completed". When the court hears a case that touches on the most contentious issues of American life, a conservative majority will be all but assured. Senate Republicans changed the chamber's rules during the Gorsuch nomination battle to prevent Democrats from insisting on a 60-vote super-majority, allowing court nominees to win confirmation by a simple majority vote.

Larsen is a former law professor and special counsel to the dean at the University of MI who also clerked for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Soon after he was sworn into office in 2017, Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to succeed the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who had died a year earlier.

The conservative has been a pivotal vote on many decisions including the 5-4 rulings that decided same-sex marriage and upheld abortion rights.

Progressives have reason to be concerned: When asked outright during 2016 a presidential debate with Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton if he'd like to see Roe v. Wade overturned, Trump said if he became president and began nominating justices, it would be all but inevitable.

Kennedy, previously a federal appeals court judge in California, was actually Reagan's third choice for the job.
