David Coale Comments on SCOTUS Nominee Gorsuch in Live Fox4 Interview

Citing education, intellect and writing skills as key criteria, Lynn Pinker Cox & Hurst partner David Coale told Fox4 News that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch has a strong likelihood of gaining confirmation by the Senate. Speaking in a live interview shortly after the announcement, Mr. Coale said that the 49-year-old could have a significant and long-term impact on the Court’s decisions. “You can’t be on the Supreme Court for 25 or 30 years and not have a profound influence, particularly given his writing style and what appears to be a way of getting along with his colleagues,” said Mr. Coale. While social media can be expected to drive much of the public debate about the confirmation, Mr. Coale encourages a reading of what he calls the “scholarly and sometimes humorous” opinions of Judge Gorsuch. “You can’t say this is a weak intellect. This is someone so confident in his mastery of the subject matter that he can be a little loose and conversational in his writing.”
