For Immediate Release: Article III Project Unveils Biden Supreme Court Shortlist

List Based on Public Statements Made by Biden, Elected Leaders and Activists

WASHINGTON, DC — The Article III Project (A3P), which promotes and defends President Trump’s judicial nominees and appointed judges, is today releasing its estimation of the Biden Supreme Court shortlist currently in development by the Biden-Harris campaign. Despite promising to release his own list, as President Trump has, former Vice President Joe Biden has refused, even now as a new Supreme Court vacancy has been created by the recent death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The Biden Short List includes 12  potential nominees compiled from painstaking research from news reports and public statements from former Vice President Biden, his campaign staff, Democratic party officials and party activists. You can view the list here.

“Joe Biden has refused to tell the American people who he’d put on the Highest Court in the Land,” said A3P founder and president Mike Davis. “President Trump had the courage and respect to release his list of potential Supreme Court picks to the American people in 2016. The American people liked what they saw, so we elected him. Trump has updated his Supreme Court list 3 times, with 44 rock-solid potential picks for the current opening. Biden does not want us to know a single person he’s considering for the Supreme Court, because his picks would scare the hell out of American voters. So A3P decided to release a list for him.”

The Biden Shortlist includes:

Stacey Abrams – Former gubernatorial candidate and Fair Fight president (NBC News story, Biden statement about appointing a Black female)

Brigitte Amiri – ACLU lawyer (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

Xavier Becerra – Democratic Attorney General of California, former House member (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

James Forman, Jr. – Yale Law School professor (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

Rochelle Garza – ACLU of Texas staff attorney (specifically referred by People’s Parity Project)

Deepak Gupta – Appellate lawyer, Gupta Wessler (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

Sherrilyn Ifill – NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund president (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

Pam Karlan – Stanford Law School professor, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Voting Rights (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

Leah Litman – University of Michigan Law School professor (specifically referred by People’s Parity Project)

Melissa Murray – NYU School of Law professor (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

Judge Cornelia “Nina” Pillard – D.C. Circuit Judge (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

Zephyr Teachout – Fordham Law School professor (specifically referred by Demand Justice)

“Any of these 12 individuals would be a radical choice for the Supreme Court by Joe Biden, likely to undermine our Constitution, legislate from the bench and threaten the 2nd Amendment and other fundamental rights,” said Davis. “It is time for Joe Biden to release his list. In the meantime, voters can judge this list.”
