Kennedy would not let up.
During Wednesday’s confirmation hearing for Biden trial court nominee Kato Crews, Louisiana Senator John Kennedy (R) threw some softball questions at Crews —and he couldn’t hit them.
From Fox News:
Crews, a nominee for district judge of the U.S. District Court of Colorado, was asked by Kennedy how he would “analyze a Brady motion,” with Crews answering that he had not “had the occasion to address a Brady motion” during his four and a half years on the bench.
After stumbling over the answer, Kennedy asked Crews if he knew “what a Brady motion is.”
Crews, who currently serves as a magistrate judge, admitted that the concept was “not coming to mind” as a result of never having addressed the issue before, prompting Kennedy to ask if Crews remembered the Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland and what the case held.
“I believe that the Brady case involved something regarding the Second Amendment,” Crews responded. “I have not had an occasion to address that.”
A Brady motion is a legal concept that came as a result of the landmark Brady v. Maryland Supreme Court decision in 1963, which held that the prosecution must hand over potentially favorable evidence to the defense.
