The Alito Nomination


On October 31, President Bush nominated Judge Samuel Alito to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court. On January 6th, CRC released a report on Judge Alito's record on environmental issues entitled, "Alito Nomination Raises Fundamental Concerns about the Future of Environmental Law " and asked the Senate to examine his record closely during his confirmation hearings.  The news release for this report is available here.  To see Community Rights Counsel’s initial release on the Alito nomination click here.

To see a copy of the letter CRC sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee expressing our opposition to the confirmation of Alito, click here.
