Storyboard Text

  • The Presidential pick
  • I want to nominate you as judge for the Supreme Court! Because you have a good record and your a republican.
  • Sweeeeet!
  • The Senate Judiciary Committee
  • He has a good record, but some suspicious rulings...
  • The full Senate
  • Why did you rule this way in court?
  • The president has the power to nominate judges. When the president is deciding whether or not to choose someone they look at their background and experience they also use the litmus test in politics to see if their ideology matches them.
  • "Borking"
  • Not sure if you'll be a good fit now...
  • Made up of 20 members, they investigate the nominees background, they question the nominee, and they will report whether or not they think they should be approved
  • The Vote(a long time later)
  • We approve your nomination!
  • After the Senate Judiciary Committee rules whether they think the nominee will be a good fit or not they go to the senate and they say whether or not the nominee is approved or not.
  • New justice
  • Sometimes "borking" occurs against the nominee where other people deliberately try to get the nominee disapproved because of party identification.
  • I don't think he'll be a good justice he is completely the opposite of what I want he's pro life and for less gun control!
  • The nominee either gets approved or not with a majority vote. But this process can take a lot of time with filibusters and intentional put offs.
  • YAY!
  • UGGGGH!
  • IF approved the nominee becomes a justice and services a life term or until they retire.
