Attorney General Jeff Landry Praises Nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
1/31/2017

BATON ROUGE, LA - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after President Donald Trump announced his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States:

“I applaud President Trump for nominating Judge Gorsuch, a jurist with a proven record of upholding the Constitution. Judge Gorsuch has been a staunch proponent of states’ rights and religious liberty. He is committed to the Founding Fathers’ principle of a limited judiciary, famously saying that judges should ‘strive to apply the law as it is, focusing backward, not forward, and looking to text, structure, and history to decide what a reasonable reader at the time of the events in question would have understood the law to be.’ While filling Justice Scalia’s seat will be a tough feat, I am confident Judge Gorsuch will continue to be an honorable and ethical jurist; and I look forward to his swift confirmation by the United States Senate.”
