That said, I would suspect that the language in 2021.22 calling for the publication of the NomCom’s explanation for rejecting a petitioning nominee may prove problematic from a privacy point of view. At the very least, it should be required that a declined nominee must be made explicitly aware of, and consent to, this disclosure as a part of the process of opening a petition.
I assumed all along that privacy of the nominee was the reason why the
explanation is not revealed, and the NomCom should reveal the explanation only
if the nominee explicitly waives privacy. On the other hand, all rejected
nominees should be entitled to know the reasons privately, and simply asking for
them does not imply such waiver.
