ROLAND MARTIN: SCOTUS Nominee Neil Gorsuch Under Fire From Civil Rights Groups

Published on Mar 24, 2017(Today)

Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch is under fire from civil rights groups and is being haunted by the case of a Detroit truck driver who came before his appeals court.

During the confirmation hearings, questions have also been raised about whether Judge Gorsuch tends to rule in favor of big business over the little guy.

Critics have used the case of a Detroit trucker named Alphonse Maddin who was fired for leaving his trailer behind after breaking down in below zero weather in 2009.
