WASHINGTON, D.C., April 14, 2021 – This week Congressman Mondaire Jones is introducing the Judiciary Act, which would add four seats to the Supreme Court.
Alliance for Justice President Nan Aron issued the following statement:
“A majority of the justices on the Supreme Court were nominated by presidents who lost the popular vote. Over the past four years, we saw two of those seats stolen to stack the Court with ultraconservative justices with a partisan agenda. We can’t simply sit by and allow them to turn back the clock on equal justice and the rule of law for decades to come. Too often our courts have been rigged to serve the wealthy and powerful at the expense of all others seeking justice. Expanding the number of justices and seizing the opportunity to nominate diverse, forward-thinking jurists will democratize the highest court in the land so that it can properly uphold the rights of all Americans. It’s time to put the justice back in Supreme Court ‘justice.’”
