Appellate partner Brian Paul spoke with The Indiana Lawyer regarding President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States.
Paul told the publication he thought that Barrett would have been nominated to the Supreme Court when Justice Anthony Kennedy retired in 2018. Paul continues to support her nomination and believes her work on the 7th Circuit has shown her to be an impartial jurist and not favoring one kind of litigant over another.
“Her decisions can only fairly be described as pro-Constitution and anti-judicial imperialism,” Paul said to The Indiana Lawyer. “She implements the law as it is written and enacted, without regard to who the litigants before her are … and regardless of her own policy preferences — exactly as our Framers meant for the law to be implemented.”
