Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen faced members of the US Senate today as she seeks a promotion to the federal bench.
Larsen said she’s beholden to the rule of law and not the president who nominated her.
President Trump named Larsen to the Sixth Circuit US Court of Appeals, which ranks just below the US Supreme Court.
Larsen was on Trump’s list of prospective Supreme Court nominees when he ran for president. But Larsen says she doesn’t know how she got on that list, and did not make any promises on how she’d deal with cases.
