Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host “The Year Without a Justice: The Scalia Vacancy and the Future of the Supreme Court,” Tuesday, October 18 at 5 p.m. The panel discussion features Dahlia Lithwick, Senior Editor at Slate Magazine and Kristine Lucius, Democratic Chief Counsel and Staff Director, Senate Judiciary Committee.
The lecture is sponsored by Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Alliance for Justice, American Constitution Society, Leadership Council on Civil and Human Rights, National Council of Jewish Women, and People for the American Way.
About the Lecture:
When Chief Justice Roberts drops his gavel on October 3, the U.S. Supreme Court begins a new term under circumstances unprecedented in American history. On news of the late Justice Antonin Scalia's death on February 13, the Senate's leadership responded in a way that had never happened before, announcing that no nominee of the sitting President would receive Senate confirmation, under any circumstances. The reason offered was the goal to leave the Court's ideological balance in the hands of voters. No stalemate of that kind has ever before occurred, and it will likely produce one of the longest unfilled vacancies in the Court's entire history.
The nationally prominent panelists will put the controversy in its context and cut through the obfuscating rhetoric to work through the questions it poses: questions of constitutional magnitude over the relationship of law and politics, the role of the branches in preserving the rule of law, and the path forward from the bitterness of today's judicial politics.

- Sara Schiavoni, Lecturer, John Carroll University, and co-author of the Goldman, Schiavoni & Slotnick series on Judicial Nominations
