Your Call: Neil Gorsuch's judicial philosophy

Mar 21, 2017

On the second day of Neil Gorsuch's confirmation hearing, we'll discuss his judicial record and philosophy, and what it tells us about how he might rule on the Supreme Court.

In the highly publicized Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius case, Gorsuch sided with Hobby Lobby, a family-owned chain of craft stores that objected to Affordable Care Act regulations requiring employers to provide employees with birth control coverage. Who is Judge Gorsuch? What does his record say about his position on key issues including workers' rights, climate change and abortion rights?
