Yesterday, lawyer-journalist, Kathleen Rubino, chose a question associated with the U.S. Supreme Court. As you can read here, it asked which justice was appointed on an interim basis as Chief, then not confirmed by the U.S. Senate. The answer was John Rutledge.
It's a sign of these wildly political times that SCOTUS was chosen as a subject on Abovethelaw.
There is already one vacancy because of Scalia's death. It seems, thanks to politics, Merrick Garland has not bee approved.
There could be more vacancies during the next administration. They might or might not be filled, depending on who becomes president and what party controls the Senate. Or, depending on who becomes president and what party controls the Senate, the right to abortion could be circumscribed and there could be limits on the amount permitted to be contributed to political campaigns.
So, the highest court in the land has evolved into clickbait. Put it in your subject head and first sentence and traffic will happen. At least for now. That could change post-election day.
