Who’s Left to Appoint?

The Reagan-era Justice Department and White House Counsel’s Office have produced an extraordinary number of influential federal judges and soon its second Justice. There remain a few more lawyers from those offices in that era, all of whom would make extremely good judges. One of them stands out, and as the White House looks to fill the vacancies on the federal appellate courts, including the two in addition to Brett Kavanaugh’s seat on the D.C. Circuit, it ought to put forward the name of Roger Clegg. (Here’s his most recent piece from NRO.)

Roger’s brilliant, and among the most decent and ethical men you’ll ever meet.

He has devoted most of his post-government career to pursuing the vision of the first Justice Harlan of a color-blind society, so his nomination would be controversial. But it is deserved, and the law would be the better if Roger’s name appeared on a nominee’s list.
