Storyboard Text

  • The political litmus test is another aspect of this nomination process. Senate asks questions of the Justice to get their opinion on hot button issues to see their true political ideology.
  • After about 60 long days of being vetted, the justice may or may not get their desired position. But if you make it through the Senate hearings you get the ultimate judgeship in the Supreme Court of the United States
  • So do you still want to be a Supreme Court Justice?
  • The most important part of this test is the determination of a judge being active or restrained. An activist will push for social reform and interpret the Constitution whereas a restraint would not want social reform and take the Constitution at face value.
  • The Senate sometimes disapproves of the appointee which draws out the process even more when the president has to choose another person.
