Distinguished Professor Sheldon Goldman comments on Sen. Collins

Sheldon Goldman, Distinguished Professor of political science, says U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, who has approved almost every federal judge nominee during her years in the Senate, has had an impact on how the judiciary works. “The district courts are the first line of defense, so to speak,” he says. “They make very important decisions that across the board affect people’s lives – from reproductive rights to fair due process rights, the rights of criminal defendants and so on.” (Portland Press Herald [Maine], 1/12/20)
