Lynch and Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius.

Today, Judge Gorsuch was on Capitol Hill, meeting with senators.  President Trump urged the Senate to quickly confirm Gorsuch, arguing that the Senate should change the rules to approve a Supreme Court nominee by a simple majority if gridlock appears.  Because of Democratic feelings about Gorsuch occupying the “stolen seat” of  President Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, the hearings are expected to be contentious.

Updates about the confirmation process will be made.
