Edmund LaCour

Alliance for Justice strongly opposes Edmund G. LaCour’s confirmation to the District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. Like many of Trump’s judges, LaCour would be an ideologue, dedicated to advancing a conservative political ideology, rather than the neutral administration of justice. His demonstrated opposition to voting rights throughout his career — especially at the height of the COVID-19 crisis — abortion access, and environmental protections, as well as his tough-on-crime approach to criminal justice are disqualifying for a lifetime appointment.
