One of President Donald Trump’s 25 options to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy resides in South Bend.
In fact, Amy Coney Barrett tops Trump’s alphabetical list that he created last year. She was picked by Trump last year to become a circuit judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit based in Chicago. She also was harshly questioned by Senator Dianne Feinstein about her faith and how it relates to her view of the law.
Prior to that, she taught law at Notre Dame and clerked for late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
