Trump to announce nomination of conservative federal court nominees

Among the nominees to be announced tomorrow are two state supreme court justices Trump had identified as potential U.S. Supreme Court nominees: Justice Joan Larsen of mi and Justice David Stras of Minnesota, who are to be nominated to open seats on the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 6th and 8th Circuits, respectively.

The former University of MI law professor was elected to the bench back in 2015 and has also worked as a law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia.

Trump's new nominees will include two judges whom he had placed on his Supreme Court shortlist during his presidential campaign, the person familiar with the matter said.

A senior White House official told the Times that Trump will announce new batches of nominees on a regular basis - there are 100 openings in the lower courts that Trump must fill.

The list of judicial nominees was confirmed to Politico news by a Trump advisor. The White House also will announce four nominees for the federal district courts and one for the Court of Federal Claims, which hears civil lawsuits against the federal government.

Thapar, whose nomination is pending before the Senate Judiciary Committee, is a nominee for one of several vacancies on the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Sources close to the process said Mr. Trump will nominate Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen and Louisville, Kentucky attorney John K. Bush to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals; Minnesota Supreme Court Justice David Stras to the 8th Circuit; University of Notre Dame law professor Amy Coney Barrett to the 7th Circuit, and Alabama lawyer Kevin Newsom to the 11th Circuit. She was a law professor at University of MI at the time.

He followed up his nomination of Neil Gorsuch with the nomination of Judge Amal Thupar to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Numerous appellate nominees to be announced Monday have deep ties to the conservative Federalist Society.
