09/04/2005: Will Justice Stevens...
...Stay or Step-Down??
The news that Chief Justice Rehnquist has died, brings up a point I had heard: rumors that Justice Steven always planned to step-down IF Rehnquist left the court.
It will get interesting as to the next potential nominee and N.O.W. is already seeing a crisis:
"With two lifetime appointments, George W. Bush could not only upset the delicate balance on this Supreme Court, but also extend his right-wing ideology and disregard for individual rights to the third branch of government - the judiciary - thus guaranteeing second-class status for girls and women in the U.S. for decades.
Senators must demand full disclosure of all of the writings and opinions of every nominee, and must commit to filibuster any nominee who does not clearly support our rights."
