Defend our Courts!

Please forgive the short notice, but our courts are
being infiltrated at all levels with corporatists,
yes-men, and enemies of our rights. It is critical
that we stop these confirmations because wherever we
fail to stop them we will suffer thereafter with the
ensuing tyranny of their decisions.

Bush has once again nominated a judge with dubious
credentials. In question is Leslie Southwick for the
Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. And PFAW has responded
with a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Please read it for detailed background information
about this candidate:
http://media.pfaw.org/05-30-07_Southwick_Letter.pdf?tr=y&auid=2783758

Southwick's rulings and statements show that he is not
committed to equal justice and has no place on the 5th
circuit court.

Please add your voices of concern or condemnation.
This court is particularly critical as it is a federal
appeals court. If we citizens cannot protect our
courts from right-wing ideologues, we will have
nowhere to turn for justice.

The confirmation hearing is scheduled for Thursday,
6/21, and we hope to stop this nomination in Committee
before it goes on to the full Senate, so please call
in when you get this. Even if the confirmation clears
the Committee, it still can be stopped in the Senate.
So it is not too late to voice our opposition. And all
calls and emails will be very valuable.

Senators Feinstein and Kohl in particular my be
wavering. Can you take a moment to call them and ask
that they vote against Southwick's confirmation?

Sen. Diane Feinstein (CA) (202) 224-3841
Sen. Herb Kohl (WI) (202) 224-5653

If you do call these two Senators, could you please
notify Color of Change how your call went:

You can contact all the Senators in the Judiciary
Committee here:

PFAW is also hoping to keep track of the number of
calls here:
http://pfaw.kintera.org/CallReport.

If you still have the time, please sign this letter:

Many thanks for your help!!!
Please forward to your activist friends.
