The judge who sided with CNN and its reporter Jim Acosta in their lawsuit against the White House was nominated by President Trump and, until last year, was chief counsel to the GOP-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly, who was confirmed by the Senate in September in a 94-2 vote, will continue overseeing the case. He ruled on Friday that the White House must return CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass,” which allows him to report from the White House grounds, stating that Acosta was not given due process when it was suspended last week.
The article goes on to state the following:
Kelly, 49, was a top staffer to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, from 2013 to 2017 and is a member of the conservative Federalist Society. He has also worked in private practice and as a federal prosecutor. He once spent a year representing low-income residents of Washington, D.C., in cases involving public benefits, landlord-tenant, and family law.
A Catholic who has two young daughters, Kelly’s wife, Sharon Kershbaum, works as the chief operating officer for the Washington, D.C., Department of Human Services.
