Mistick and Gormley weigh in on Judge Hardiman as U.S. Supreme Court finalist

Friday, January 27, 2017

Professor Joseph Sabino Mistick and Duquesne University President Ken Gormley discuss Judge Thomas Hardiman’s “principled" conservatism in a story in the Washington Examiner.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit judge and Duquesne Law adjunct is on President Donald Trump’s short list for a U.S. Supreme Court nomination.  

Mistick calls Hardiman “a jurist who people on both sides of the aisle would be comfortable with based on his temperament and balanced approach to the law.” 

Gormley says Hardiman has a “brilliant analytical mind and love of the very working class people that he came from.” The former law dean also discusses how Hardiman deferred payment for teaching as an adjunct to establish a Duquesne Law scholarship for first-year, first-generation law students.
