Matt Byrne’s class will focus on the following questions: 1).How have the Gorsuch and Kavanaugh nominations impact the Supreme Court? 2) How many vacancies remain on the lower federal courts? 3)What impact has been caused by the elimination of the filibuster for judicial nominations? 4) How have Trump’s judicial nominees differed from past Republican presidents’ judicial nominees, and more. 5) What is the status of the president’s judicial nominations for the federal courts covering Ohio and Kentucky, and do the nominees have a common judicial philosophy? 6) How do federal courts differ from state courts?
