Confirmations of Circuit Court of Appeals Justices Willet, Ho and Grasz Give President Donald J. Tump and Senate Republicans Record Number of Circuit Court Appointments

Washington, DC – The United States Senate has confirmed three of the most highly-quality judicial appointees in the nation this week to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals with the approval of Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett and former Texas Solicitor General James Ho to the Fifth Circuit and former Nebraska Deputy Attorney General Steven Grasz to the Eighth Circuit. “Congratulations to Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett and to James Ho on their confirmations to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and to Steven Grasz on his confirmation to the Eighth Circuit,” said Executive Director Tim Head. “All three Justices have displayed exemplary character throughout their careers and are outstanding jurists who respect the rule of law and the Constitution.” Following the three confirmations this week, President Donald J. Trump and Senate Republicans have worked together to confirm a record number of federal appellate court judges during a president’s first year in office. “Thanks to President Donald J. Trump, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley, the federal judiciary is being reshaped for an entire generation in a manner that upholds religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, the rule of law, and the Constitution,” added Head.
