The first electoral cycle is that of presidential impeachments; the second is that of Supreme Court nominations. Soon the two cycles may intersect.
It would be both smart politics and good governance to update the list of SCOTUS contenders. When a vacancy emerges, whether before or after the election, who will be considered?
Nearly 40 percent of all votes in American history to filibuster judicial nominees have occurred since President Trump took office.
Patrick Bumatay would be a highly qualified jurist and a strong conservative voice on the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals. We would be lucky to have him.
Liberals are increasingly comfortable arguing against the ‘undemocratic’ Constitution, seeing the system as the opposition.
Republicans are on the verge of moving the Supreme Court rightward in a way seemingly unthinkable since President Reagan’s nomination of Robert Bork.
As has been typical for the last several decades, this Supreme Court hearing was even more rancorous than the last. Here’s what we learned from the first day’s events.
Sen. Jeff Flake has been in Africa for nearly a month and he’s been telling different people different things about when exactly he’s planning to return.
Libertarians aren’t going to agree with Kavanaugh on everything—we don’t agree on everything ourselves!—but he’s a big step forward for constitutional liberty.
The American Left equates sincere religious faith with bigotry. That’s why Kavanaugh will almost certainly face a religious test from Senate Democrats.
Now that Justice Anthony Kennedy has retired, President Trump owes it to us to continue keeping his promise to appoint justices in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia, a promise that likely got Trump elected.
As a result of their shared philosophies, Ray Kethledge and Neil Gorsuch are staunch defenders of religious liberty, the Second Amendment, and the separation of powers.
If judges are a vindication of Trump, are they also a vindication of Mitch McConnell? And if so, does a good Supreme Court really compensate for a lousy Congress?
Ten particularly outstanding candidates from the list come to mind: five from the South; four from the Midwest; and one establishment pick from the Beltway.
Democrats are trying to use Mitch McConnell’s 2016 political maneuvering against him, saying that the Senate should halt the nomination process until after the election.
This issue with Vitter’s confirmation comes as people on the Left are increasing pressure against hires if they’ve spoken against abortion or any non-hardline leftist views.
Kyle Duncan had nothing to do with John Thompson’s criminal case. Duncan also had nothing to do with the prosecutors who withheld evidence from Thompson’s attorneys.
We have divergent interpretive theories that map onto ideologically sorted parties, so is it any surprise that elections are high-stakes for judges?
The Senate Judiciary Committee interrogated two of the most qualified lawyers for the federal appeals courts not on their qualifications but on their identities.
This week, in an echo of the 21 contenders for the Supreme Court rolled out during the campaign, 11 would-be black-robers join last month’s stellar list of 10 lower-court nominees.
