Schumer Statement on Supreme Court Issuing Unanimous Rebuke to Judge Gorsuch’s Ruling in Case Involving Disabled Students

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today released the statement below in response to Judge Neil Gorsuch’s previous ruling on disabled students:

“President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, was unanimously rebuked today by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court found that disabled students are entitled to substantially greater protections under federal law than Judge Gorsuch previously ruled they were. This is part of a continued, troubling pattern of Judge Gorsuch deciding against everyday Americans—even children who require special assistance at school. Fortunately, in this case, every single Justice on the court agreed that Judge Gorsuch was wrong.”
