ACLJ: Don’t politicize judgeship creation process

by D. Bennett

Jay Sekulow, writing for the American Center for Law and Justice, expresses concern that the newly-introduced Federal Judgeship Act of 2009 “could bring partisan politics into the process of creating judgeships.”

The Act, introduced by Sen. Leahy (D-VT) of the Senate Judiciary Committee, would create permanent and temporary judgeships at the federal appellate and district court levels. Several Republicans have expressed concern about the Act, worrying that it could be used to politically reshape the federal judiciary.
