The Supreme Court Confirmation Process: Play Ball!
Wednesday, April 7, 2010
12:00 PM - 01:30 PM
Even before the Sonia Sotomayor confirmation, critics condemned the process as little more than "Kabuki theater." The Sotomayor hearings did little to change that impression, renewing calls for reexamination of the process. Proposals range from abolishing the hearings altogether to trying to make the questioning more effective in revealing the nominee's views. With multiple vacancies on the horizon and the direction of the Court hanging in the balance, the importance of scrutinizing nominees has increased. A panel of experts, observers and participants in the process will explore these issues.
