David Coale Comments on how the Fifth Circuit is Shifting Further Right

LPCH partner and appellate expert, David Coale, recently commented in The Texas Tribune's article discussing how "Trump-appointed judges are shifting the country's most politically conservative circuit court further to the right."

That kind of dialogue is “below the surface, but it’s going on,” Coale said. “And it’s of one mind — these folks all share a generally consistent philosophy. When that’s on every panel, it has a rightward push, a subtle one, a small one, a hard to measure one — but it’s very, very real.”
