SUPREME COURT UNANIMOUSLY OVERTURNS OPINION WRITTEN BY NEIL GORSUCH AS NOMINEE BOASTS ABOUT HIS RECO

ThinkProgress Justice Editor Ian Millhiser reports “While Gorusch was testifying, the Supreme Court unanimously said he was wrong.”

About 40 minutes after Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch began his second day of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, all eight of the justices he hopes to join said a major disability decision Gorsuch wrote in 2008 was wrong.

Both the Supreme Court’s decision and Gorsuch’s 2008 opinion involved the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which requires that public school systems which take certain federal funds provide a “free appropriate public education” to certain students with disabilities.
