IMO, the first court to truly change is the 7th circuit, where Democratic and moderate Republican judges(Terrance Evans,Ann Williams and Richard Posner) have all been replaced by far right Republican hacks.
Yes Trump has put three judges on the 11th Circuit but if you read the fine print on them, you'll see that Frank Hull(who was a woman) and Julie Carnes were NOT judges Clinton or Obama wanted but had to put on the courts either because Republicans controlled the Senate(Frank Hull with Clinton) or because Patrick Leahy was an idiot(Julie Carnes with Obama) and forced Obama to accept her as part of a package deal to get Jill Pryor on the 11th Circuit.
Kevin Newson was replacing a G.W. far right judge so no change there.
The only loss here is like elsewhere(the 5th and 6th) we lost a chance to turn a conservative court into a moderate one.
The 3rd,7th and 9th Circuits will be where the true damage is done.

They have $$$ and also think that they are sooo special that they'll be immune from a rollback of our rights.

The question now isn't if our rights will be rolled back but how much?

Indeed.
I know some folks are downplaying this but I simply don't see how any anti-LGBT discrimination laws can survive if the people who refuse to follow them claim it's art etc.

I know it's not polite to speak ill of the dead, especially of a civil rights hero but IMO, Reinhardt (and Ginsburg I fear) were foolish in not stepping down when they had a chance.
Reinhart's replacement would have been easily confirmed while Democrats still had control of the Senate and you can be sure whomever Pence and Leonard Leo come up with to replace him now, he/she will be a vicious anti-LGBT hack.
I get wanting to stay on as long as you can for fear your replacement won't be as liberal but sometimes you can lose sight of the greater good.
I dread what will become of the 9th Circuit soon, I truly do.

Of all the people Trump will get to replace, this one sickens me the most, especially since unlike some of the other judges, this will be a conservative replacing a liberal, akin to Marshal/Thomas.

Jeff Landry has a gay brother too.
Makes him all the more vile.
