The ABA committee that vets judicial nominees gave a rare "not qualified" to 9th Circuit nominee Lawrence VanDyke, currently a DOJ official. Interviewees described him as "arrogant, lazy, an ideologue, and lacking in knowledge of the day-today practice" americanbar.org/content/dam/ab…
VanDyke is the ninth Trump judicial nominee to be rated "not qualified" by the ABA committee, and the third circuit court nominee to date. He's been nominated for one of the Nevada seats on the 9th Circuit (filling Judge Jay Bybee's seat now that Bybee is taking senior status)
A "not qualified" rating from the ABA committee that vets judicial nominees is rare, both historically and also for this administration — Rs have accused the ABA of bias, but the vast majority of Trump's nominees have been rated "well qualified" or "qualified"
