Democrats will filibuster Sandra Day O'Connor's
Democrats will reconsider filibustering Supreme Court nominations when Roe v. Wade
is overturned by a vote of 2-1.Update:
Eugene Volokh informs me in email that the Supremes require six members to establish a quorum. That rule is set in the United States Code (specifically, 28 USC § 1
). Congress could
change that rule - but an attempt would get shot down faster than Bill Gates at a Linux convention.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Dems ever engaged in a filibuster campaign to bring the Court below quorum.
