    Trump gets to appoint new judge to Atlanta federal appeals court

    During President Obama's eight years in office, he appointed many judges. How many judges will President Trump appoint? Will it swing any courts from left to right?

    Trump gets to appoint new judge to Atlanta federal appeals court

    Judge Frank Hull of the federal appeals court in Atlanta has informed President Donald Trump she intends to take senior status — which means working only part time — giving the president the opportunity to fill a Georgia vacancy on the busy court.
    Among those being considered by the White House for the post are state Supreme Court justices Nels Peterson and Britt Grant and state Court of Appeals Court Judge Elizabeth Branch, according to state officials familiar with the nomination process.

    The White House and Georgia’s two senators, Johnny Isakson and David Perdue, declined to comment.

    Hull, appointed to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals by President Bill Clinton, has served on the court since 1997 and has been one of its more conservative jurists. Hull is a former Fulton County trial judge who also served as a U.S. District Court Judge before joining the federal appeals court.

    no need to lie.

    a judge on a court can't get rid of civil rights laws.

    Never forget the ultimate prize, reverting our society to 1955, or if possible, 1925.

    Meh. The majority of judges--liberal or conservative--are smarter and more enlightened than Trump.

    Couple that with the fact that the vast majority of people are nothing like the disgusting human being that is Donald Trump and I'm not concerned about this judge at all.

    1915 would be the ultimate, no income tax, no women's suffrage, no social security and Medicare, no labor laws, pure unadulterated capitalism and survival of the fittest....
