Questions for Judge Gorsuch

by Andrew P Napolitano

“In the Gorsuch hearings this week, the nominee has argued that should he commit to certain positions on issues, it would not be fair to litigants who might come before him as a circuit judge if his nomination were not to be confirmed or before him in the Supreme Court if it were, as those litigants would have a proper belief that he prejudged their cases. ‘It would be grossly improper,’ he argued, for him to commit in advance to how he’d vote on any issue. He’s correct. So, what questions could both Democrats and Republicans put to him and what questions could he answer that would inform their judgment and illuminate his thinking without committing his judgment?” (03/23/17)
