Dem senator won’t return ‘blue slip’ for 2 Trump court picks

(The Hill) Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) on Friday said he will not sign off on two of President Trump’s judicial picks, escalating a long-simmering fight over nominations in the Senate.

Brown said he will oppose the nominations of Chad Readler and Eric Murphy to serve on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

“I cannot support nominees who have actively worked to strip Ohioans of their rights. Special interests already have armies of lobbyists and lawyers on their side, they don’t need judges in their pockets,” Brown said in a statement.
