Good Behaviour #1: "Grist of a Judge's Life"

We debut a brand new series, "Good Behaviour," to track the confirmation process of Judge Neil Gorsuch, who President Trump just nominated to fill Justice Scalia's vacant seat. For an insider's perspective, Dan and Ian talk to Jason Murray, who clerked for Judge Gorsuch prior to clerking for Justice Kagan. They also dissect some of Judge Gorsuch's opinions on the Tenth Circuit, answer a hotline question about his homeland, analyze linear representations of ideology, and reveal the surprising person Judge Gorsuch called first after he received the nomination.

If you have questions about Judge Gorsuch and the confirmation process, get in touch! We may feature your calls and tweets in future episodes of this series.
