Brown to Meet with Supreme Court Nominee Garland on Thursday

April 4, 2016 - 12:51 PM

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced he will meet with Merrick Garland, President Obama’s nominee to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court, in Washington D.C. on Thursday.

“Hardworking men and women across Ohio go to work every day and do their jobs. They expect their Senators to do the same – and that means giving fair consideration to President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Chief Judge Merrick Garland,” said Brown. “The people elected Barack Obama President twice - and just like every other president in our history, the people elected him to a full, four-year term, not three. They also elected 100 senators and sent us to Washington to do our jobs. It’s time for us to get to work.”

Brown has repeatedly called on senators to do their jobs and give full and fair consideration to the President’s nominee. He has stood with Ohioans, local leaders, and legal scholars – including: Peter Shane, a constitutional law professor at the Ohio State University’s Mortiz College of Law; B. Jessie Hill, Associate Dean at Case Western Reserve University School of Law; and Staci Rucker, Assistant Dean at University of Dayton School of Law – during events throughout Ohio.

Chief Judge Garland’s nomination to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit was overwhelmingly approved with bipartisan support in 1997.

Despite recent objections from Senate Republicans, over the last 100 years the full Senate has taken action on every single Supreme Court candidate nominated in an election year. Most recently, in 1988, Justice Anthony Kennedy was confirmed by a vote of 97-0 by a Democratic Senate in the final year of President Reagan’s second term.
