Two Conservatives Step Down From Supreme Court Commission

- CONSERVATIVE BRIEF - Jonathan Davis - OCT 16, 2021 -


A pair of conservative experts who were members of the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court have resigned, according to reports.


The resignations come as other legal experts complained that the panel was too biased against court-packing, a concept favored by progressives who have been pressuring President Biden to do it as a way to overwhelm the high court’s current right-leaning majority.


On Thursday, the White House released a preliminary draft of discussion items ahead of deliberations by the commission during a virtual hearing the following day, the Washington Examiner reported.


But before the virtual hearing, conservatives Caleb Nelson, a law professor at the University of Virginia, and Jack Goldsmith, a law professor at Harvard, resigned from the panel, according to a White House statement.


Prior to the hearing, conservatives Caleb Nelson, a law professor at the University of Virginia, and Jack Goldsmith, a law professor at Harvard, resigned from the panel, the White House said.


“These two commissioners have chosen to bring their involvement to a close,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates noted in an emailed statement to Bloomberg News. “We respect their decision and very much appreciate the significant contributions that they made during the last 5 months in terms of preparing for these deliberations.”


In an email to the same outlet, Nelson said simply that he had “resigned from the Commission” and that he “was honored to be part of it,” but he didn’t explain why he was stepping away. The Washington Examiner said that it attempted to contact both experts but had not received any reply.
