In Response to: Religion and the Courts

Published online Jan. 4, 2018

President Eisgruber ’83 is to be commended for his criticism of senators for questioning a judicial nominee’s religious views (Inbox, Oct. 25). His letter and copies were sent to all members of the Judiciary Committee, but surely he knows the problem is with the Democrats, specifically Sens. Dianne Feinstein, Dick Durbin, and Mazie Hiroko.

Notre Dame President John Jenkins showed more gumption. His letter went directly to ranking member Sen. Feinstein and stated that it was chilling to hear that a nominee’s faith might disqualify that person from service as a federal judge.
