Biden Judicial Nominee Appears Baffled By Basic Legal Terms

via Forbes Breaking News

Sara E. Hill, a nominee for a district judgeship in Oklahoma, faced scrutiny during her nomination hearing for her struggle to define fundamental legal terms like “stay” and “injunction” orders.

When questioned by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., she stumbled through her answers.

“A stay order would prohibit, um, sorry. An injunction would restrain the parties from taking action. A stay order … I’m not sure I can, actually can, can give you that,” lamented Hill.

Carrie Severino, a constitutional lawyer, expressed disbelief at Hill’s lack of knowledge, emphasizing the importance of understanding these terms for a federal judge. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)

“How can an individual who wants to be a federal judge possibly not know this?” wrote the attorney on X.

Adding, “Stays and injunctions come before district judges all of the time.”

“This is not a trick question,” she insisted.

Despite this, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., seemingly commended Hill for “passing the Kennedy bar exam,” prompting criticism regarding the leniency of the evaluation process.
