ARLINGTON, Va. – Following Senate confirmation of Allison Rushing to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips issued the following statement:
“Allison Rushing is highly qualified, will respect the rule of law, and exercise judicial restraint on the U.S. Court of Appeals. Ms. Rushing understands the role of a judge is to interpret the law as written, not legislate from the bench. We commend the senators who supported her confirmation and encourage the Senate to continue the important work of confirming nominees committed to upholding the Constitution. “
