Confirmation Hearing Reinforces Serious Concerns About Justice Priscilla Owen’s Record

Conclusion

The testimony given by Priscilla Owen at her confirmation hearing did not answer the very serious concerns that have been raised about her nomination, and in fact raised yet additional concerns. It is clear that Justice Owen does not satisfy President Bush’s stated objective of appointing judges to the federal bench who will interpret the law, not make it. Indeed, her right-wing judicial activism would threaten fundamental rights and liberties. The Senate Judiciary Committee should reject Priscilla Owen’s confirmation.
