Trump’s recently confirmed SCOTUS pick Neil Gorsuch just received devastating news from his fellow eight Supreme Court justices.
They came to the unanimous decision that Gorsuch’s legal analysis was completely wrong. Gorsuch argued that the Individuals with Disabilities Act only requires schools to offer disabled students a bare minimum education.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote a statement expressing the cumulative opinion of all eight justices saying Gorsuch’s approach would steal away disabled students’ right to receive an education.
“When all is said and done, a student offered an educational program providing “merely more than de minimis” progress from year to year can hardly be said to have been offered an education at all. For children with disabilities, receiving instruction that aims so low would be tantamount to “sitting idly . . . awaiting the time when they were old enough to ‘drop out.’”
When confronted, Gorsuch attempted to excuse himself by saying he “was bound by circuit precedent” instead of simply admitting he was wrong.
It’s scary to think Gorsuch just joined a team of justices who strongly disagree with his views.
Do you think Gorsuch is a cancer to the Supreme Court?
