WASHINGTON, DC- Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted in favor of Damien Schiff and John K. Bush to serve as federal judges. These judicial nominees have been two of the most extreme from the Trump White House to date. In response to the vote, Desiree Tims, LCV’s Judiciary Program Director issued the following statement:

“LCV is deeply disappointed that a majority of the committee voted to approve Damien Schiff and John K. Bush. Our judicial system is a bedrock of our democracy and environmental safeguards. If confirmed, these judicial nominees could have a devastating impact on the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the lands we cherish. We believe that both nominees are unfit and lack the proper temperament to serve as fair arbiters of justice. We urge the Senate to protect our courts and environment and oppose these nominees.”
