Lambda Legal: Trump Administration’s Assault On the Courts and LGBTQ Protections Intensifies

 | 
12/21/2019

Lambda Legal released the third edition of its annual report of judicial nominees revealing the alarming extent to which the Trump-Pence administration, with the help of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, has filled the federal judiciary with an unprecedented number of unqualified, extremist judges whose records reveal deep hostility for the rights of LGBT people, women, immigrants, and other vulnerable populations. The 2019 report “Trump’s Judicial Assault on LGBT Protections: After Three Years of Trump Nominees, Bias and Bigotry Remain the Norm” found that the overall story remains the same: over 1 in 3 of Trump’s circuit court nominees (36%) have a demonstrated history of anti-LGBT bias. “The damage that is being done to our federal judiciary may be this administration’s most lasting and dangerous legacy,” said Kevin Jennings, CEO of Lambda Legal.
