Neal Katyal, the former acting U.S. solicitor general under Barack Obama, is strongly backing the nomination of Neil Gorsuch's to the Supreme Court.

"Judge Gorsuch is one of the most thoughtful and brilliant judges to have served our nation over the last century," Katyal is quoted by the Washington Examiner.

"As a judge, he has always put aside his personal views to serve the rule of law. To boot, as those of us who have worked with him can attest, he is a wonderfully decent and humane person."

Katyal was acting solicitor general after Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.

Writing in a column for The New York Times, Katyal said: "I am hard-pressed to think of one thing President Trump has done right in the last 11 days since his inauguration. Until Tuesday, when he nominated an extraordinary judge and man, Neil Gorsuch, to be a justice on the Supreme Court.

"Right about now, the public could use some reassurance that no matter how chaotic our politics become, the members of the Supreme Court will uphold the oath they must take: to administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich. I am confident Neil Gorsuch will live up to that promise."
