Trump Will Be Able to Nominate 2 More Conservative Judges to 11th Circuit

HeadlineSep 09, 2019

President Trump is set to appoint another judge to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. One of the court’s judges said last week he will “take senior status,” meaning Trump can appoint a new judge to succeed him. Last month, another judge also announced he will also become a “senior” judge. In total, Trump will have appointed five of the 12 judges on the court, which covers Alabama, Georgia and Florida and hears many civil rights cases, as well as death penalty and voting rights cases. Since Trump came into office, he has appointed nearly one out of four of the nation’s federal appeals court judges — 70% of those are white men.
