11th Circuit Poised to Lean Right With Trump Appointment as Judge Takes Senior Status

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit will have a different makeup by March 2020, when Judge Stanley Marcus will have become a senior judge—along with the circuit’s longest-serving active judge, Gerald Bard Tjoflat.

The change means President Donald Trump will select two new judges for lifetime appointments. Tradition dictates that they should come from Florida, where Marcus and Tjoflat are based.

With two more appointments, Trump will have named five judges who will serve on the Eleventh Circuit for decades to come. That’s almost half of the court’s active bench, which will be made up of seven Republican and five Democratic appointees. Trump has already filled two Georgia seats and an Alabama seat.

What happens next will be “very consequential” for Florida, according to University of Richmond law professor Carl Tobias, who tracks and writes nationally about judicial nominations. Though judges are impartial figures bound by a code of conduct to avoid politics, their ideological leanings do leave a mark, the way Tobias sees it.

“I don’t think it’s any secret that most of Trump’s appellate appointments, and I think he would agree, have been extremely conservative ideologically, especially on culture war issues like abortion, voting rights, racial discrimination, capital punishment, those kinds of issues that do come up in the Eleventh Circuit,” Tobias said.

^^THIS^^ is why I voted for Trump. To bring balance to the force.
The tyranny of Lefty black robed tyrants (making legislation) will end.

Thank God for Trump!

1. Interesting how we see the words extreme or

Extremely when the judge is conservative but never see those for liberal judges?

I think most people would consider RGB for example as extremely liberal.

It’s almost a natural speech pattern with the MSM. The bias is undeniable today.

2. Following The Constitution is not leaning right. It's being a competent judge.
