First Liberty Institute Statement on Senator Ted Cruz’s Opposition to the Nomination of Sul Ozerden to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
Washington, DC—The following statement may be attributed to Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO and Chief Counsel for First Liberty Institute:
“First Liberty Institute is grateful to Senator Cruz for his commitment to the Constitution and for his leadership in opposing Judge Sul Ozerden’s nomination to the Fifth Circuit. Elevating Judge Ozerden to a lifetime appointment on an influential federal appeals court would be a mistake. Judge Ozerden has never demonstrated the necessary commitment to the religious liberty and Constitutional principles that America needs. There are many highly qualified candidates for the Fifth Circuit. Judge Ozerden is not one of them.”
