With the US Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, a charismatic Catholic, expected to start today, the American Bar Association has given its highest rating for her nomination based on Barrett’s legal abilities and qualifications.
The Blaze explains:
The American Bar Association on Sunday announced that it has given Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett its highest rating. […]
In a Sunday letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the American Bar Association advised that Barrett is “well qualified” for a position on the Supreme Court.
On Sunday, DC Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy shared the letter on Twitter, writing, “The American Bar Association released its determination that Judge Amy Coney Barrett is ‘Well Qualified’ on the eve of the start of her Supreme Court confirmation hearings.”
Barrett also received a strong endorsement from another very unexpected source, Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman, who says she is more than qualified to serve on the US Supreme Court. In an opinion editorial for Bloomberg, Feldman wrote:
“Yet these political judgments need to be distinguished from a separate question: what to think about Judge Amy Coney Barrett,” Feldman wrote. “And here I want to be extremely clear. Regardless of what you or I may think of the circumstances of this nomination, Barrett is highly qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.”
