Earthjustice Statement on Senate Rejection of Thomas Farr’s Nomination to Federal Bench

WASHINGTON - Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) announced yesterday that he will be the 51st vote against Thomas Farr’s nomination to become a federal judge for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

The following is a statement from Patrice Simms, Vice President of Litigation at Earthjustice:

“Senator Tim Scott deserves credit for taking a stand against a divisive, hateful nominee. Thomas Farr shouldn’t have been nominated to the bench. We hope the Senate will depart from recent practice and consider a well-qualified, impartial nominee in his place.”
