Jed Shugerman was quoted in a Vice News article about the possible impact on abortion rights if President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, is confirmed.
“He, like any of the short-listers, would restrict abortion rights. I’m not naive,” wrote Jed Shugerman, a professor at Fordham University School of Law, in a blog post a few days before Kavanaugh’s official nomination. “But if we are going to emerge from the Trump era with the rule of law and a degree of judicial independence, both sides need to change their approach to judicial nominations. Kavanaugh seems to be a judge who is not extreme, but reasonable and mainstream.”
