Overview

The Next Justice: Repairing the Supreme Court Appointments Process by Christopher L. Eisgruber

The Supreme Court appointments process is broken, and the timing couldn't be worse-for liberals or conservatives. We are likely to see the replacement of one or more justices in the very near future, and both President Obama and the Senate will need to make informed judgments about the next nominee to the Court-judgments that will be difficult to make well unless the appointments process is fixed now.

In The Next Justice, Christopher Eisgruber boldly proposes a way to do just that. Eisgruber describes a new and better method of deliberating on Court nominations-one that puts the burden on nominees to show that their judicial philosophies and politics are acceptable to senators and citizens alike. He also makes a new case for the virtue of judicial moderates.
