Federal Judge Terrence Boyle Unfit for Promotion to Appeals Court

Judge Boyle's Disturbing "States' Rights" and Anti-Civil Rights Record

As a district court judge, Boyle has compiled a troubling record of espousing strong views intended to promote “states’ rights” and limit federal authority to protect civil rights and other interests. He has been reversed twice by the United States Supreme Court for siding with white plaintiff voters in redistricting cases, including once in a unanimous opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas, and has sought to curb the rights of people with disabilities and other discrimination plaintiffs. He has also been reversed by the Supreme Court for seeking to invalidate a federal campaign finance law.
