Supreme Democracy

The End of Elitism in Supreme Court Nominations

Richard Davis

  • Traces changes to the process of nominating new Supreme Court Justices from America's inception to the present day
  • Examines the effects of the media and public opinion on a previously esoteric process
  • Forces us to consider whether the democratization of the Court nomination process is good for governance, and good for the Supreme Court itself
