Taking Advice Seriously: An Immodest Proposal for Reforming the Confirmation Process

Southern California Law Review, Vol. 65, No. 1572, 1992

Abstract:     
This brief Essay suggests a structural reform to the judicial nomination and confirmation process, designed to reduce the role of partisanship and special interest politicking. Though this proposal is aimed primarily at preventing logjams when the President and Senate are of different parties, it is likely to be beneficial even where that is not the case, to the extent that the opposition party is prone to filibuster nominees.
