President Obama Nominates Merrick Garland for Supreme Court

The President has nominated D.C. Circuit Chief Judge Merrick Garland for the United States Supreme Court. Garland, a former prosecutor and head of the Department of Justice's Criminal Division, has served on the D.C. Circuit for 15 years. EPIC has previously urged the Senate to hold hearings and explore the views of earlier Supreme Court nominees, including Justice Kagan, Justice Sotomayor, and Chief Justice Roberts. EPIC frequently files amicus briefs in the US Supreme Court, including Spokeo v. Robins and Utah v. Strieff in the current term.
