The Supreme Court is now a full house again with the swearing in of the newest justice. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the oath in the White House today to Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch, once a law clerk for Kennedy, now fills the spot left by the late Antonin Scalia over a year ago.
J. Christian Adams, an election attorney previously with the Voting Rights Section of the U.S. Department of Justice, joined Dana Loesch to discuss what he is most looking forward to with the addition of Gorsuch to the Court. Adams immediately raised the issue of "Chevron deference" which is a reference to a 1984 case requiring judges to defer to government agencies' interpretation of statutes according to what they thought "reasonable."
"That may be one of the most important issues facing the nation in the next 50 years, Dana, is how much deference should we be giving bureaucrats," Adams noted.
