Critics: Senate Ready to Fight Draft Rule Targeting Federalist Society | RealClearPolitics

The proposed rules change is the latest salvo in a campaign to cast the Federalist Society as too political, and thereby politically risky, for judiciary participation. The Wall Street Journal editorial board labeled the proposal “judicial political mischief masked in high sounding rhetoric,” a step that is spurring a backlash among “judges and others” who should denounce it as “undermining legal education in America and perhaps violating the First Amendment right of association.”


I still remember (I say in my old man voice) when I walked the long walk down the length of the YLS dining hall to go to one of the first dinners of the Federalist Society, then just formed.
