American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow Assails Appointment of Tony West

 

Another controversial appointment has been made by Attorney General Eric Holder. This time his appointment to the number 3 post at the Department of Justice is raising important questions.

Tony West served as assistant attorney general for the Civil Division and has now been named to acting associate attorney general.

What you may not know, though, is that West represented convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh, who fought on behalf of the Taliban and aided Al Qaeda. He’s now serving a 20-year prison sentence after being captured in Afghanistan in 2001. And, what’s more, not only did West represent Lindh, but his firm was also involved in two other defense cases for terrorists working against the U.S.

Marijuana is the number one drug arrest in America and in many cases, possession of marijuana has allowed law enforcement to seize assets without so much as a court hearing. Whenever a […]

  • Alliance Judges Oppose Two Giant Power Grabs 2016/05/04
    We call your attention to two legislative proposals under which the Judicial Council would arrogate to itself enormous new powers. The first proposal, which percolated out of the Futures Commission, would allow the Council to reallocate vacant judgeships from one county to another “under a methodology approved by the council.”  In other words, if a […] […]

  • Your ideas for saving the court system money 2016/04/20
    Here’s a post that was suggested by a reader that works within the court system. She suggested that we put up a post and field suggestions from others inside and outside of the court system on how the court system can save money. Her suggestion was this: As long as you know what you’re being […]
