Americans for Financial Reform today expressed its opposition to the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court in a letter to U.S. senators. An excerpt:

“Judge Gorsuch’s past decisions and writings demonstrate a longstanding and consistent hostility to the rights of investors and consumers. His lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court would undermine access to the courts, exposing Americans to greater risk from fraud and abuse. Judge Gorsuch’s stated views suggest his appointment would also help financial companies’ efforts to eliminate the rules necessary to protect the economy from another financial calamity induced by Wall Street’s recklessness.”
