Gormley discusses President Obama's Supreme Court nominee

Thursday, March 17, 2016

A number of media outlets looked to Ken Gormley, Duquesne University's former law dean and president-elect, for comments on President Obama's nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. 

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette featured an article about how Scalia’s death spurred debate on qualifications for a justice. Ken Gormley, himself a Harvard Law graduate, agreed that many would find it surprising that yet another nomination is coming from one of select number of Ivy League schools.

The Toledo Blade and AP also ran the story. 

 

In the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Gormley discussed the Senate Republicans refusal to hold a confirmation hearing on the president's pick for the Supreme Court, which he said could set the Court back years.
