Potential U.S. Supreme Court nominee William Pryor won't attend inauguration
Al.com (Alabama Media) reports:
"Former Alabama Attorney General and federal appeals court judge William "Bill" Pryor, who is reportedly being considered by President-Elect Donald Trump to fill a vacancy on the U.s. Supreme Court, said Tuesday that he will not attend the inauguration.
Pryor, in response to a question from AL.com about whether he would be among other Alabamians at Trump's inauguration, stated he would not be attending.
Pryor did not elaborate as to why he would not attend and did not respond to questions regarding his meeting this past weekend with Trump regarding who Trump will nominate to replace the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died early last year.
Pryor, a circuit judge who is on U.S. 11th Circuit of Appeals, is reportedly among two people being considered for the court. The other is Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Diane Sykes.
Pryor, however, is thought to be the favorite of Trump's Attorney General-nominee, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions."
