Senate Confirms Amy Coney Barrett for Supreme Court

參議院確認艾米 · 科尼 · 巴雷特出任最高法院大法官

Issued on: October 26, 2020

發佈日期:2020年10月26日

Following a unanimous vote by the Judiciary Committee last week, the Senate just confirmed Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett to become the 115th Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court.

在司法委員會上週一致投票後,參議院剛剛批准第七巡回上訴法院法官艾米 · 科尼 · 巴雷特成為美國最高法院第115位大法官。

“Having confirmed her to the Circuit Court in 2017 with bipartisan support, the Senate has already undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of her record,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said after President Trump made the nomination last month.

得克薩斯州共和黨參議員特德 · 克魯茲(Ted Cruz)在川普總統上月提名她之後說,「2017年在兩黨支持下確認她進入巡回法院後,參議院已經對她的記錄進行了徹底和嚴格的審查。」

Throughout Justice Barrett’s career, she has faithfully upheld our U.S. Constitution as written. The American Bar Association gave Barrett its highest rating, and she has an impressive track record across the legal profession—as a judge, professor, and litigator.

在巴雷特法官的整個職業生涯中,她一直忠實地維護我們的憲法。美國律師協會給了巴雷特最高的評價,她在整個法律界有著令人印象深刻的記錄,無論是作為一名法官、教授和還是訴訟律師。

Most important, she will bring a valuable new perspective to our High Court:

最重要的是,她將為我們的高等法院帶來一個寶貴的新前景:

Justice Barrett is the first mother of school-aged children to become a Supreme Court Justice. She is also only the fifth woman ever to serve. 

巴雷特法官是第一位成為最高法院法官的學齡兒童的母親。她也是有史以來第五位擔任此職位的女性。

As the mother of a child with special needs, she understands the issues and concerns confronting our nation’s most vulnerable people.

作為一個有特殊需求的孩子的母親,她理解我們國家最弱勢群體面臨的問題和擔憂。

Justice Barrett will be the only current justice to have a law degree from a school other than Harvard or Yale. She graduated at the top of her class from Notre Dame Law School in Indiana.

巴雷特法官將是唯一一位擁有哈佛或耶魯以外學校法律學位的現任法官。她以全班第一名的成績畢業於印第安納州聖母大學的法學院。

Justice Barrett has made her philosophy clear: She will not legislate from the bench. “Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society, but courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life,” she said during her confirmation hearings.

巴雷特法官已經明確了她的理念:她不會在法官席上立法。她在確認聽證會上說:”法院對法治負有重要責任,這對一個自由社會至關重要,但法院不是為瞭解決所有問題或糾正我們公共生活中的每一個錯誤”。

“The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches, elected by and accountable to the people,” she added.

“政府的政策決定和價值判斷必須由政治部門作出,由人民選舉產生並對人民負責。”她補充說。

One letter—written by Justice Barrett’s former law clerks—calls her approach principled and independent-minded. “Judge Barrett taught us that a good judge will not always like the results she reaches; a good judge goes wherever the law leads,” it reads.

有一封信,由巴雷特法官的前法律助理寫的,稱她的做法是有原則的,有獨立思想的。信中寫道:「巴雷特法官教導我們,一個好的法官不會總是喜歡她得出的結果;一個好的法官會一直在法律的指引下的。」

Justice Barrett is the very model of a sympathetic yet impartial judge, according to her colleagues at Notre Dame Law School. She is exactly the type of person whom the American people deserve to have sitting on their Supreme Court.

巴雷特法官是一個有同情心而又公正的法官的典範,據她在聖母大學法學院的同事說。她正是美國人民值得擁有的那種坐在最高法院的人。

“If we are to protect our institutions, and protect the freedoms, and protect the rule of law that’s the basis for the society and the freedom that we all enjoy—if we want that for our children and our children’s children—then we need to participate in that work,” Justice Barrett said.

「如果我們要保護我們的機構,保護自由,保護法治——即社會的基礎和我們所有人享有的自由;如果我們想讓我們的孩子和我們孩子的孩子享有這種自由,那麼我們需要參與這項工作,」巴雷特法官說。
