On March 11, 2019, President Trump nominated Jeffrey V. Brown to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas for the seat previously held by Judge Melinda Harmon. Brown is currently a justice on the Supreme Court of Texas, a position he has held since 2013. He previously acted as a state court judge for the Texas Fourteenth Court of Appeals and 55th District Court. He has been a member of the conservative Federalist Society since 1997.
Alliance for Justice has prepared this brief snapshot to highlight areas of Brown’s record in which we believe greater scrutiny by the Senate is warranted. This snapshot report does not attempt to analyze the entirety of his record.
