Liberal Groups Oppose Obama Judicial Nominee

Twenty-seven liberal groups have expressed strong opposition to Michael Bogg’s nomination to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, citing his record as a state legislator from 2001 through 2004. In a letter to 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the groups said Boggs “lacks a demonstrated commitment to fairness and equal justice with respect to issues of reproductive freedom, civil rights, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality.” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the administration had not seen the letter and declined to comment, the Nashville Ledger reports.
