Merrick B. Garland

Data de nascimento: 13. Novembro 1952

Merrick Brian Garland é um juiz federal americano, presidente da Corte de Apelações para o Circuito do Distrito de Colúmbia. Ele é membro da corte desde 1997.

Nascido na região de Chicago, Garland se formou summa cum laude no Harvard College e formou-se magna cum laude na Harvard Law School. Depois de servir como assistente do juiz Henry J. Friendly na Corte de Apelações dos Estados Unidos para o Segundo Circuito e para o juiz William J. Brennan, Jr. da Suprema Corte dos Estados Unidos, ele praticou advocacia corporativo no escritório Arnold & Porter e trabalhou como promotor federal do Departamento de Justiça dos Estados Unidos, onde desempenhou um papel de liderança na investigação e julgamento dos bombardeiros de Oklahoma City.

Garland foi nomeado por Bill Clinton para integrar a Corte de Apelações para o Circuito do Distrito de Colúmbia em 1995 e em 1996, tendo sido aprovado pelo Senado dos EUA em 1997. Anteriormente, Garland lecionara em Harvard.

Com a aposentadoria do juiz da Suprema Corte dos EUA, John Paul Stevens, em 2010, Garland foi considerado um dos favoritos à indicação do presidente dos EUA, Barack Obama, para ocupar o cargo. Entretanto, a advogada Elena Kagan foi indicada por Obama. Garland é visto como um juiz moderado, cujo nome poderia ser bem recebido por membros do Partido Republicano no Senado.Em 16 de março de 2016, o presidente Barack Obama indicou Garland para servir como juiz da Suprema Corte, para preencher a vaga criada pela morte de Antonin Scalia. O Senado recusou-se a realizar uma audiência ou votar nesta nomeação, feita durante o último ano da presidência de Obama, com a maioria republicana insistindo que o próximo presidente eleito preenchesse a vaga. A recusa dos republicanos do Senado em considerar a nomeação foi altamente controversa. A indicação de Garland perdurou por 293 dias e expirou em 3 de janeiro de 2017, com o final da 114º Legislatura do Congresso.

„For myself the balance came from always driving my children to school. So that every day we had that first half-hour, 45 minutes of nothing but uninterrupted time. Sometimes it was just a bunch of sarcasm. Sometimes it was just listening to the radio. But sometimes it was real explanation of what the kids were thinking what they were worried about.“

„The most important thing that a clerk can do for a judge, I tell my clerks, is to prevent me from jumping off the cliff if I don’t want to. That is, sometimes I don’t realize there’s a cliff there at all, that the implications of what I’m doing are really totally wrong, and that sometimes it takes another person or two other people to warn me that you’re just not reading this case correctly, or you’re just not understanding the implications of what a decision in this way would be.“

„They tell you in Washington, that if you want a friend get a dog. Harry Truman said that. That is not true. Get a family. This is a hard place to be. No matter how much honor you have, people will attack you one way or the other. And the principle solace that you get is from your family. Because they’re behind you no matter what happens. So never forget about that. Whatever interests you have in your career, you have to balance it with a deep relationship with your family.“

„The great joy of being a prosecutor is that you don’t take whatever case walks in the door. You evaluate the case, you make your best judgement, you only go forward if you believe that the defendant is guilty. You may well be wrong, but you have done your best to ensure that as far as the evidence that you are able to attain, the person is guilty. It is the kind of even-handed balancing that a judge should undertake although of course a judge has the advantage of having somebody speak for the other side.“
