The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, last Thursday, narrowly affirmed the nomination of  St. Louis lawyer Stephen Clark  to a federal judgeship, despite criticism from pro-equality groups about his alleged anti-LGBTQ views.

  

Clark, who was nominated by President Donald J. Trump for a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, was approved by the Republican-controlled committee on a party-line vote of 11-10.

 

Last week, 19 national, state and local LGBT civil rights organizations  drafted a letter opposing Clark's nomination, citing his unacceptable views on civil rights.

 

Clark's nomination will now be voted on by the full U.S. Senate.
