This week marks the year anniversary of President Donald Trump winning the White House. We’re taking stock of the biggest legal developments and industry news stories tied to Trump’s presidency.
➤ Supreme Court Newbie, Justice Neil Gorsuch
Many Republicans see the addition of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court as Trump’s greatest accomplishment as president. Gorsuch, a former judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and a stalwart conservative, was confirmed in early April. As Supreme Court correspondent Tony Mauro has observed, he’s been no “shrinking violet” in arguments, fueling reports that he’s been irritating his colleagues. Gorsuch delivered his first opinion June 12 in Henson v. Santander Consumer USA but the rookie’s real impact will be felt this term as the court takes up a series of hot-button cases touching on voting rights, surveillance, arbitration, gay marriage and whistleblower protections.
