Ninth Circuit Nominee Defends Record on Native Americans


October 25, 2018

WASHINGOTN (CN) – One of President Donald Trump’s nominees to the Ninth Circuit on Wednesday defended his record on legal issues related to Native American tribes, as the Senate Judiciary Committee held its second nominations hearing during the Senate’s recess ahead of the midterm elections.

Ninth Circuit nominee Eric Miller, a partner at the Seattle firm Perkins Coie, faced questions from Senator Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, on Wednesday about his views on legal issues surrounding tribes. Miller has worked on a number of high-profile cases involving tribal rights, including before the Supreme Court, and two Native American groups have come out against his nomination based on his record in those cases.
