Judge Neil Gorsuch's Hiring Practices: The Company He Doesn't Keep...or Employ

Blackout by Gorsuch

The Supreme Court justice that Gorsuch lauds and is slotted to replace, Antonin Scalia, proudly employed exclusionary hiring: no black law clerks. One of the two U.S. Supreme Court Justices that Gorsuch clerked for following his federal appeals court clerkship also had a record of zero black clerks.

Perhaps the U.S. Senate’s failure, so far, to question Gorsuch’s hiring practices relates to the Senate’s own paucity of top black staff members – less than one percent among 300+ top staffers according to one study.
