If you care about civil liberties, clean air, privacy, reproductive rights, social justice, corporate accountability, equality, and fairness, then you care about our federal courts.
Every day, federal judges protect the Constitution, place a check on overzealous legislatures, and help Americans find justice. AFJ’s Judicial Selection Project monitors and assesses federal judicial nominations to ensure our courts are staffed with highly-qualified judges that will safeguard the rights of all Americans… not just the privileged few.
During the Trump Administration, we have successfully worked to stop the appointments of several dangerous nominees, including Brett Talley, Jeff Mateer, Ryan Bounds, Gordon Giampietro and Thomas Farr.
