The Sutherland Institute has announced Sen. Orrin G. Hatch will be participating in its 2018 Congressional Event Series on Thursday, Aug. 9, at Sutherland’s offices. Hatch will be leading an exclusive discussion on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court. Hatch, a senior member and former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has overseen the confirmation process of 13 United States Supreme Court Justices, including the confirmation process of every current sitting member of the court. This is an invitation-only event.
From Sutherland President Rick Larsen: “Sutherland is honored to continue our 2018 Congressional Event Series with Senator Orrin Hatch,” Larsen said. “Senator Hatch brings a unique perspective to an important topic – the nomination and confirmation process surrounding a United States Supreme Court Justice. There is no one better to speak from a perspective of experience and explain the nuance and politics inherent in this uniquely American process. We are grateful to Senator Hatch for participating and look forward to hearing from him.”
From Sen. Hatch: “Throughout my Senate service, fighting for the confirmation of judges who will uphold the Constitution has been a top priority of mine,” Hatch said. “From Rehnquist and Scalia on to Gorsuch and now Kavanaugh, I’ve worked with my Senate colleagues to ensure that the Senate’s thorough vetting and confirmation process is fair and balanced. I know Judge Kavanaugh well, and I look forward to discussing how important his confirmation is to our home state of Utah at the Sutherland Institute this week.”
