Abstract

The recent partisan blocking of President Obama’s moderate Supreme Court appointment, Judge Merrick Garland, was a new peak for a politicized Supreme Court. However, though this dangerous trend has been a long-term development, Michael Livermore and Daniel Rockmore argue that the trend is not irreversible and propose serious reforms to help tackle the dysfunctional Court’s politicization and remove the political stakes associated with its appointments.
