LANSING, Mich. — On Tuesday, Feb. 25, Western Michigan University Cooley Law School Constitutional Law Professor Devin Schindler released a statement regarding President Donald Trump attacking U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Twitter, saying “they should recuse themselves from ‘Trump-related’ cases,” as reported by the Washington Post.

“President Trump's continued impertinent attacks on federal Judges again highlights the importance of judicial independence,” said WMU-Cooley Law School Constitutional Law Professor Devin Schindler. “The founders created an independent judiciary as a check on the potential despotism of the political branches. These continued attacks undermine the very foundation of our polity.”
