Trump’s 2018 Supreme Court Shortlist and Their Views on Administrative Law

by Christopher J. Walker — Wednesday, July 4, 2018@chris_j_walker

President Trump has announced that next Monday, July 9th, he will nominate someone to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Kennedy’s retirement last week. According to David Lat, who is arguably the best source on judicial nominations in the Trump Administration, President Trump has interviewed four candidates so far.

Here at the Notice and Comment blog we have collected thoughtful blog posts on those four candidates, plus a fifth (Judge Hardiman) who interviewed for the Scalia vacancy and is likely a finalist again, regarding their views on administrative law. For ease of reference for readers, I’ve collected the links to those various posts here:

Also in our archives from November 2016, David Feder, who is currently clerking for Justice Gorsuch, had this post on then-Judge Gorsuch’s administrative law jurisprudence.
