Knowing More Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee

U.S. President Donald Trump recently announced last Tuesday night about the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. If Congress will validate, he will replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died last February.

As reports claimed by Refinery 29 in the statement of the new U.S. President, it will be the most transparent and the cleanest judicial selection process in U.S. history. Many who have voted the new elect President have the same mindset in the Supreme Court of the U.S., but he will pick someone who shares the same interest with him.

For more than a decade, U.S. Supreme Court has only eight justices which mean that there is no tie-breaking when it comes to voting the next Supreme Court judge. Neil Gorsuch was President Donald Trump's choice to fill the seat against the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. A few months ago, Barrack Obama has chosen Judge Merrick Garland for the empty seat, but the Republican made their action and refused him to give a hearing for 10 months; the longest waiting nominee for Supreme Court of the U.S. to have been confirmed nor rejected.

Neil Gorsuch was a Denver-based judge for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals; he was selected by the former President George W. Bush way back in 2006. He has family connections to the Grand Old Party (GOP) establishment. His parents specifically his mother was once the director of the Environmental Protection Agency during former President Ronald Wilson Reagan's administration; the first woman to supervise that office. Neil Gorsuch is the youngest Supreme Court nominee at the age of 49.

Judge Neil Gorsuch was a product of the Ivy League including his degrees from Harvard and Columbia. Before becoming a judge in Denver, he served as a clerk in two Supreme Court justices and then enrolled to Oxford via Marshall Scholarship, and graduated a doctorate in legal philosophy, as stated by Economist.
