NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee to oppose the confirmation of Stephen S. Schwartz to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (09/14/17)
"During his short legal career, Mr. Schwartz has consistently pursued an anti-civil rights agenda across a variety of issues, including immigrants’ rights, LGBTQ rights, reproductive rights, and voting rights. In addition, Mr. Schwartz lacks sufficient experience to serve as a federal judge, and has adopted extreme positions that are contrary to well-established law. Overall, Mr. Schwartz’s nomination continues President Trump’s disturbing trend of nominating judicial candidates who will undermine or effectively eliminate civil rights protections."
