Molly Coleman, the executive director of the progressive People’s Parity Project, said that the current imbalance on the court has made the legal system inhospitable to those championing causes and clients that sitting judges likely argued against as attorneys.
“Judging is complicated and there are many factors that go into it,” Coleman said. “We don’t know, when somebody is nominated, how they’re going to rule on every single case or every single issue that comes before them. But the best guess that we have is based on their past record, and so we need to be looking at what they’ve been doing and how they’ve lived their professional life.”
