GOP Senators fire back at the ABA’s partisan advocacy for Obama nominees

    Ed Whelan reports at Bench Memos: Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and ranking Senate Judiciary Committee member Chuch Grassley have sent a strong letter . . The ABA presents itself to the public as a non-partisan, professional organization. However, it has chosen to advocate for this Administration’s circuit court nominees in the few remaining months before this presidential election, when it chose not to do so before either of the last two presidential elections despite much more compelling circumstances. This sort of selective advocacy is precisely why so many people question the ABA’s professed neutrality.

    ABA: “David Boies challenged America’s lawyers to ‘bring the rule of law to its full fruition here in this country … to fulfill the goals and lofty rhetoric of our founding fathers,’ as the keynote speaker at the Opening Assembly of the 2010 ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco . . .

    Karen Sloan write at The National Law Journal ( “The two have founded a non-profit organization called Law School Transparency with the goal of compiling detailed employment and salary information from all ABA-accredited law schools. The goal is to collect data on individual law graduates, rather than the general class breakdowns required by the ABA and U.S. News. ‘The number one problem with the current system is that it allows schools to hide their employment information in aggregate statistical forms,’ McEntee said. ‘You may know that 50% of graduates got jobs at law firms, but you don’t know what types of firms and types of jobs they got.’”
