50 new justices to balance the liberal bench?

The White House on Tuesday announced the re-nomination of 51 federal judicial nominees left over from the previous Congress, kickstarting the administration’s effort to install more conservative judges after GOP activists worried that such appointments had stalled.

Nine of the 51 appointments are for spots on prestigious and influential federal appellate benches, including two on the mostly liberal San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which President Trump has often derided as “disgraceful” and politically biased.

Neomi Rao, the president’s “regulatory czar,” who would take now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s vacated seat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, is on the list.  Case Western University School of Law professor and Washington Post commentator Jonathan H. Adler wrote when Rao first joined the administration that “Trump’s selection of Rao suggests the administration is serious about regulatory reform, not merely reducing high-profile regulatory burdens.”

Also on the roll was Brian Buescher, for a seat as United States district judge for the District of Nebraska. In December, Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, raised concerns about the Omaha-based lawyer’s membership in the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic service organization — prompting legal commentators to suggest the Democrats were engaging in religious discrimination.
