Committee Hearing Reinforces Case Against Confirmation of Janice Rogers Brown


The October 22 hearing on the Brown nomination clearly failed to resolve the serious concerns about her nomination. To the contrary, her testimony reinforced those troubling questions and further demonstrated, in the words of a law professor who formerly supported her, that Brown is “outside the mainstream of today’s constitutional law.” As the Washington Post has noted, Brown’s nomination appears calculated to “only inflame further the politics of confirmation to one of this country’s highest-quality courts.”23 Her nomination should be rejected.
