MSU grad on short list for Supreme Court

Post by Long Time Cat » Thu Sep 10, 2020 11:53 am

I think this is pretty cool.

Additions to President Donald J. Trump’s Supreme Court List

Lawrence VanDyke is a Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Prior to his appointment earlier this year, Judge VanDyke served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the United States Department of Justice. Earlier in his career, Judge VanDyke served as both Solicitor General of Nevada and Solicitor General of Montana. Judge VanDyke served as a law clerk to Judge Janice Rogers Brown of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He earned his B.S., with highest honors, from Montana State University; his B.Th., summa cum laude, from Bear Valley Bible Institute; and his J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School.

Can hardly wait for his confirmation hearings. Should make the Kavanaugh hearings look like a love fest once the looney left from UM start in on him. FTC! If Ginsberg would just get out of the way, the fun can begin. 8) :lol: VanDyke and me(and most of you) have something in common, a MSU Bachelors Degree. No, I didn't get any honors. :oops:

Is Vandyke a Montana native? I know there are a big family of Vandyke’s in the Churchill - Amsterdam area.

That does sound familiar. Maybe associated with basketball...

In reading his Wikipedia, he really doesn’t sound like a good candidate...

Sounds like he may not do well under pressure...
