Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call
What has caused the increased battles over judicial confirmations? Which nominees have had the most difficult confirmations? Using the largest, most detailed data set on judicial confirmations ever assembled, a new book, Dumbing Down the Courts: How Politics Keeps the Smartest Judges off the Bench, shows that it is the smartest/most potentially influential nominees who have had by the far the most difficult time getting confirmed.
Dr. John Lott and Mr. Curt Levey will discuss the book in our upcoming Teleforum call.
- Mr. Curt Levey, President and Executive Director, The Committee for Justice
- Dr. John R. Lott, Jr., Author, of Dumbing Down the Courts: How Politics Keeps the Smartest Judges off the Bench
Call begins at 12:00 noon Eastern Time.
