Associate Professor Chad Kinsella discusses the confirmation process
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – Associate Professor Chad Kinsella joins ABC57 to discuss the confirmation process and what happens next.
Professor Kinsella teaches Political Science at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind.
Professor Kinsella joins ABC57’s Brian Conybeare to discuss the confirmation process as Judge Amy Coney Barrett is expected to be elevated to the role of Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, one week before election day.
Conybeare asked Kinsella his take on a number of topics including whether or not the Democrat’s filibuster to delay the confirmation vote worked, how soon could Judge Amy Coney Barrett begin hearing cases and whether or not Judge Coney Barrett should recuse herself from any cases stemming from the 2020 presidential election.
Kinsella shares the nomination process with ABC57 news and how soon Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett could begin hearing cases.
“The president nominates someone, the senate deliberates, if it’s voted through the judiciary committee, then it’s going through to the full senate,” said Professor Kinsella. “It seems like it will get the approval of the senate, then at that point, once she’s sworn in as an associate justice, she can begin hearing cases very quickly. I think we will get to see very soon what kind of justice she will be on the Supreme Court.”
