The Supreme Court unanimously slapped down Neil Gorsuch’s attempt to limit the rights of students with disabilities to receive a free and meaningful public education — while Gorsuch was dodging questions in day two of his testimony at the Senate Judiciary Committee. American Bridge vice president Shripal Shah released the following statement:
“This unanimous Supreme Court ruling is more evidence that Neil Gorsuch is a heartless activist working to restrict the rights of Americans. We already knew that Gorsuch sides overwhelmingly against the rights of working people and everyday Americans, but now the Supreme Court is joining the opposition to Gorsuch’s efforts to limit the rights of students with disabilities.
“A far-right, pro-corporate judge like Neil Gorsuch does not deserve a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.”
