Law360: Durbin Likely To Become Top Dem On Judiciary Committee
This excerpt is from a panel that originally ran on November 24, 2020.
“My expectation would be that the Democrats stick to the seniority rule as they usually have,” said former Democratic Senate staffer Daniel L. Goldberg, who is now legal director for the liberal Alliance for Justice. He had praise for Durbin.
“He has been a champion his entire career for equal justice, whether fighting for ‘Dreamers’ or against gun violence in Chicago,” Goldberg told Law360. “He’s been vigorous in his opposition to Trump’s horrific judges, including most recently [Justice] Amy Coney Barrett. He asked some of the most probing and essential questions regarding her record.”
