American Bar Association: Judge Barrett is “Well-Qualified” to serve on Supreme Court

WASHINGTON?– The American Bar Association (ABA) has rated Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett as “well qualified,” based on her integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament.

In a letter yesterday to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-California), the ABA’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary provided their rating of Judge Barrett. A “substantial majority” of the committee determined that Judge Barrett is “well qualified,” with a minority of the committee rating her as “qualified.”

Senate Democrats have previously called the ABA’s “the gold standard by which judicial candidates are judges.”
