Chicago's Best Ideas: Geof Stone, "Understanding Supreme Court Confirmations"

Date: 
Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:15pm
Location: 
Room II

How has the Supreme Court confirmation process changed over the years? Are members of the Senate more prone to oppose nominees today than they were in the past? If so, to what extent is this due to the controversy over the Bork nomination? Professor Stone will discuss these and other questions arising out of the process by which the Senate does -- or does not -- confirm a President's nominees to the Supreme Court.
