Former ACLU Lawyer Confirmed by Lawyers as Judge

San Francisco Judge Edward Chen was finally confirmed by the U.S. Senate to the federal district bench in California after a protracted delay over his civil liberties record and controversial statements he made in a speech. The final vote was 56-42 with just a few Republicans crossing the aisle.

Senator Jeff Session from Alabama said that Chen displayed an “ACLU chromosome”.
