This ACS post says:
"This afternoon, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Leslie Southwick to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. The nomination -- which has proven controversial on account of Judge Southwick's record in civil rights cases and others pitting individuals against corporations -- will now face the full Senate."
A commenter says:
"How is Southwick's record controversial? Who created this controversy? It seems to me he has a sterling record. Does it worry ACS that the next Democratic president's nominees will be treated poorly too?"
Another commenter points to this article, which says in essence, where are the Democrats going to find any nominees that live up to the standard now being applied against Southwick - which is essentially this - some interest groups don't like him.
The article says:
"If "too conservative" is reason enough for Democratic senators to block a floor vote on Southwick, who is no right-wing culture warrior, then "too liberal" will be reason enough for Senate Republicans to do the same when the shoe is on the other foot."
