The Need to Apply Judgement Equally

Commenter: “I’m pointing out how broken our judicial appointment process is, resulting in incompetent and biased judges in a position of power.”

The commenter is unhappy with the judicial appointment of Kathryn Kimball (who struck down having to wear face masks on Monday, Apr 18, 2022) but is happy with the judicial appointment of Ketanji Brown Jackson.

My finding: The “how broken our judicial appointment process is” has to be applied to both appointees or to neither appointee. But not unequally applied to one or the other.

Of note, from the U.S. Courts’ FAQ page:

The Constitution sets forth no specific requirements [to be a federal judge]. However, members of Congress, who typically recommend potential nominees, and the Department of Justice, which reviews nominees’ qualifications, have developed their own informal criteria.
