A Look at Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Notable Opinions, Votes


A Take A Look At Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Significant Viewpoints, Votes

This short article is republished here with consent from The Associated Press. This material is shared here since the subject might intrigue Snopes readers; it does not, nevertheless, represent the work of Snopes fact-checkers or editors.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s candidate for the Supreme Court, has actually composed approximately 100 viewpoints in more than 3 years on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Her viewpoints consist of cases on weapons, sexual attack on school, migration and work discrimination. She likewise has actually signed onto numerous viewpoints, consisting of 2 handling abortion, that make certain to be questioned in her verification hearing.

Summaries of a few of her significant viewpoints:


Barrett has actually two times signed up with dissenting viewpoints requesting choices obstructing laws enacted by abortion challengers to be thrown away and reheard by the complete appeals court.

In 2015, after a three-judge panel obstructed an Indiana law that would make it harder for a small to have an abortion without her moms and dads being alerted, Barrett voted to have actually the case reheard by the complete court.

In July, the Supreme Court tossed out the panel’s judgment and purchased a makeover at the case.

In 2018, a three-judge panel ruled that Indiana laws needing that funeral services be held for fetal remains after an abortion or miscarriage and prohibiting abortions since of the sex, race or developmental impairment of a fetus were unconstitutional.

Barrett was amongst 4 judges who desired the complete court to weigh in and recommended that the laws, signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence, may be constitutional.

Supreme Court abortion choices “hold that, until a fetus is viable, a woman is entitled to decide whether to bear a child. But there is a difference between ‘I don’t want a child’ and ‘I want a child, but only a male’ or ‘I want only children whose genes predict success in life,’” Judge Frank Easterbrook composed for the dissenting judges.

Barrett likewise signed up with the part of the viewpoint on the fetal stays law. “Many states have laws that prescribe how animals’ remains must be handled,” Judge Frank Easterbrook composed for the dissenters. “The panel has held invalid a statute that would be sustained had it concerned the remains of cats or gerbils.”

In 2015, the Supreme Court renewed the fetal stays law, however not the restriction on abortions for race, sex and developmental impairments.



In a dissent in the 2019 gun-rights case of Kanter v. Barr, Barrett argued that a conviction for a nonviolent felony — in this case, mail scams — shouldn’t immediately disqualify somebody from owning a weapon.

The 2 judges in the bulk concurred with Trump administration arguments that the offender, Rickey Kanter, might not own a weapon under federal or Wisconsin law since of his criminal conviction.

Barrett utilized the majority of her 37-page dissent to set out the history of weapon guidelines for founded guilty wrongdoers in the 18th and 19th centuries, constant with her accept of translating laws and the Constitution according to the significance they had when they were embraced.

Barrett composed that “while both Wisconsin and the United States have an unquestionably strong interest in protecting the public from gun violence, they have failed to show, by either logic or data that disarming Kanter substantially advances that interest.”

She stated that her coworkers were dealing with the 2nd Change as a “second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.” Barrett estimated from a 2010 viewpoint by Justice Samuel Alito that extended weapon rights, however the expression likewise has actually been utilized more just recently by Justice Clarence Thomas and other conservatives to grumble that the Supreme Court has actually avoided acknowledging weapon rights.



In the exact same viewpoint on weapon rights, Barrett dipped into constitutional history to keep in mind that states did more to secure the rights of individuals to own weapons than their right to vote. In some states, individuals who were founded guilty of criminal offenses lost the right to vote, however not the right to lawfully have a weapon, she composed.

“And as a right that was exercised for the benefit of the community (like voting and jury service), rather than for the benefit of the individual (like free speech or free exercise), it belonged only to virtuous citizens,” Barrett composed.

The right to keep and bear arms communicated by the 2nd Change, by contrast, safeguards “an individual’s right to protect himself — not in his right to serve in a well-regulated militia,” Barrett composed, pointing out Justice Antonin Scalia’s 2008 viewpoint for the court in a significant weapon rights case.



Barrett composed for a unanimous three-judge panel in 2019 that supported the termination of an office discrimination suit by Terry Smith, a Black Illinois transport staff member who took legal action against after he was fired. Smith’s claims consisted of that he was called a racial slur by manager Lloyd Colbert.

“The n-word is an egregious racial epithet,” Barrett composed in Smith v. Illinois Department of Transport. “That said, Smith can’t win simply by proving that the word was uttered. He must also demonstrate that Colbert’s use of this word altered the conditions of his employment and created a hostile or abusive working environment.”

Barrett went on to state that Smith “introduced no evidence that Colbert’s use of the n-word changed his subjective experience of the workplace. To be sure, Smith testified that his time at the Department caused him psychological distress. But that was for reasons that predated his run-in with Colbert and had nothing to do with his race. His tenure at the Department was rocky from the outset because of his poor track record.”

A possible associate of Barrett’s took a various view on racial slurs in 2013. Justice Brett Kavanaugh, then functioning as a federal appeals court judge in Washington, D.C, stated one utterance sufficed. “But, in my view, being called the n-word by a supervisor … suffices by itself to establish a racially hostile work environment. That epithet has been labeled, variously, a term that ‘sums up . . . all the bitter years of insult and struggle in America,’ ‘pure anathema to African-Americans,’ and ’probably the most offensive word in English,” Kavanaugh composed. “No other word in the English language so powerfully or instantly calls to mind our country’s long and brutal struggle to overcome racism and discrimination against African-Americans. In short, the case law demonstrates that a single, sufficiently severe incident may create a hostile work environment actionable” under federal anti-discrimination laws.



Barrett composed a unanimous three-judge panel choice in 2019 making it simpler for males declared to have actually dedicated sexual attacks on school to challenge the procedures versus them.

The case included accusations by a female trainee at Purdue University that her partner had actually sexually attacked her. The trainees were recognized in court files as John and Jane Doe.

John Doe took legal action against in federal court declaring sex discrimination after Purdue suspended him for a year and eliminated his Navy ROTC scholarship. Barrett concluded Purdue’s procedure was unreasonable and enabled his suit to continue.

“The case against him boiled down to a ‘he said/she said’ — Purdue had to decide whether to believe John or Jane,” Barrett composed.

The judge slammed the university authorities who wound up siding with the female trainee. “Her basis for believing Jane is perplexing, given that she never talked to Jane. Indeed, Jane did not even submit a statement in her own words,” Barrett composed.



Barrett remained in dissent in June when her 2 coworkers on a 7th Circuit panel postponed, simply in Chicago, the Trump administration policy that might endanger irreversible resident status for immigrants who utilize food stamps, Medicaid and real estate coupons.

Under the brand-new policy, migration authorities can reject permits to legal immigrants over their usage of public advantages.

She composed that existing migration law and a Clinton-era well-being overhaul had actually currently restricted public help to noncitizens. The administration was simply utilizing freedom those laws had actually offered it, Barrett composed. The objections of immigrants and their supporters “reflect disagreement with this policy choice and even the statutory exclusion itself. Litigation is not the vehicle for resolving policy disputes,” she composed.



Barrett dissented when it comes to a Wisconsin male who confessed that he fatally shot his better half 7 times however argued that he had actually been provoked, making his criminal activity second-degree murder rather of first-degree murder, which brings a greater charge.

A federal judge examined the provoking claim in a pretrial hearing without district attorneys present and without enabling the attorney of offender Scott Schmidt to speak. The judge declined Schmidt’s claim of justification, and he was founded guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in jail. Nevertheless, a 7th Circuit panel reversed that choice, stating that Schmidt had actually been rejected his Sixth Change right to counsel.

Barrett, in her dissent, disagreed that the pretrial hearing where the judge questioned Schmidt about his justification claim was a scenario that needed Schmidt’s attorney and stated the Supreme Court has actually never ever extended the right to counsel outside an adversarial case.

The Supreme Court’s “’critical stage’ precedent deals exclusively with adversarial confrontations between the defendant and an agent of the state,” she stated.

She included: “Perhaps the right to counsel should extend to a hearing like the one the judge conducted in Schmidt’s case. But (federal law) precludes us from disturbing a state court’s judgment on the ground that a state court decided an open question differently than we would — or, for that matter, differently than we think the (Supreme) Court would.”
