Trying to remember... Judicial Appointments...

If a Judge is appointed to a Federal Circuit court and confirmed by the Senate, does that Judge have to go through ANOTHER Senate confirmation hearing to appointed to the SC?


  • Yes. This was one of the reasons the D's were upset about Garland.  He'd been confirmed to the lower courts by some of the Republicans who weren't interested in giving him a hearing for the S.C.

  • OK, I was wondering if Willet was on a track for the Ginsberg seat when she keels over.

    I suppose he might still be. Or possibly Ho.
