JUDICIAL NOMINATIONS SCORECARD:
Part II: A Statistical Survey |
The 107th Congress is now history, and we conclude here the "Statistical Survey" of the Senate's judicial confirmation record which we surveyed initially in our Court Watch Update of August 7, 2002. While the record now looks somewhat better, it is surely more the 2002 elections results, rather than a sudden "conversion to reasonableness" by Senate Democrats that accounts for the changes.
Federal Judicial Vacancies
Had No Judiciary Committee Hearing = 10 (77%)
Total Number of Active Judges by Party of
Appointing President & Years of Presidents' Terms
Current Active Judges: Republicans = 402 (50.4%); Democrats = 396 (49.6%)
Years of Presidency (since 1964): Republicans = 22 (58%); Democrats = 16 (42%)
WE HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE; LET'S MAKE 2003 EVEN BETTER!
