Because it is of the utmost importance to the protection of civil liberties who will fill the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, the 11/9 Coalition enlisted dozens of volunteers who poured hundreds of hours of research into the records of President Donald Trump’s potential nominees. We have concluded that while none of the likely nominees seems as committed to civil liberties as we would like, one of the purported three finalists for the position (who are Judges Neil Gorsuch, Thomas Hardiman, and William H. Pryor Jr.) is notably less worrisome than the others: Judge Gorsuch. We make available our summaries of the civil liberties records of the three judges and hope that whoever is chosen shows a deep commitment moving forward to the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution.

Judge Neil Gorsuch
Judge Thomas Hardiman
Judge William H. Pryor Jr.
