WASHINGTON, D.C., August 2, 2016: Alliance for Justice Action Campaign today notes the following about Donald Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees:
One of Donald Trump’s potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court is a judge who has ruled that a woman who was sexually harassed by her employer could not sue if she was fired in retaliation for reporting the abuse. We are deeply concerned that Donald Trump would promote a Supreme Court candidate who reflects insensitivity to the issue of sexual harassment.
In May, Donald Trump released a list of judges he described as potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court under a Trump administration.. AFJAC’s research on those nominees, The Trump List, can be found online here.
