WASHINGTON – Lena Zwarensteyn, Fair Courts Campaign Director at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, issued the following statement on today’s Senate vote to confirm Lee Rudofsky to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas:

“Lee Rudofsky has made a career out of curtailing critical civil rights and protections. He has advanced an extreme right-wing agenda on LGBTQ rights, reproductive freedom, and racial justice, among other issues. Without a doubt, he is unfit for the position and will bring bias to the bench.”
