Toby Crouse

On May 21, 2020, President Trump nominated Toby Crouse to serve as a judge on the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. If confirmed, Crouse would take the seat held by Carlos Murguia, a Clinton appointee who retired on April 1, 2020. Since January 2018, Crouse has served as the Solicitor General of Kansas. Crouse’s record as Solicitor General paints a clear picture of a partisan warrior bent on curtailing critical rights and protections, including access to reproductive healthcare, voting rights, workers’ rights, and the rights of everyday people in Kansas. His record of aggressive advocacy for partisan and right-wing causes suggests he will be unable to act as an independent, fair-minded jurist. Alliance for Justice strongly opposes Crouse’s confirmation.
