Freedom Partners Statement on Justice Kennedy Retirement; SCOTUS Vacancy

Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA – Following the announcement of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce Chairman Mark Holden issued the following statement:

“Justice Kennedy served our nation’s highest court with integrity and a passion for the rule of law and fundamental liberty worthy of such a critical institution. For that, we are grateful and wish him well in his many years to come.

 

“Faced now with a vacancy on the Supreme Court, we urge President Trump to nominate a justice who will vigorously uphold the Constitution and protect the freedoms it guarantees. Much like the previous successes nominating fair and experienced jurists at every level of our judicial system, including Justice Neil Gorsuch, putting forward a nominee who will respect the rule of law and reject any attempt to legislate from the bench should be of utmost importance.”
