Claim SC2Yes - Bush's 2nd SupCt Nominee Appvd

Category: Politics:US Politics JUDGED at 0
Owner:7188, ux
Judge:2, Chris Hibbert
created:2005/09/08
due date:2006/11/07

The Claim

This claim will be judged TRUE if the second person nominated by George W. Bush to the U.S. Supreme Court is approved by the U.S. Senate before any subsequent nominee.

The claim should be judged TRUE as soon as this second nominee is approved, or FALSE as soon as this second nominee is rejected by vote. The claim should also be judged FALSE if any subsequent nominee is approved by the Senate to serve on the Supreme Court before the second nominee. The claim pertains to Bush's second nominee, whether for the position of Associate Justice or Chief Justice (if John Roberts is rejected or withdraws from consideration).

In order to be considered a nominee, the person must be formally nominated for consideration by the Senate. If the nomination, once formally made, is withdrawn before it comes to a full Senate vote, the claim will be FALSE. If two or more nominees are presented to the Senate on the same day, each will be considered a nominee for the purposes of this claim, so if any of these is approved by the Senate, the claim will be TRUE. If Bush does not appoint a second nominee before his presidency ends, this claim will pertain to the first nominee by any subsequent president.

The judge should postpone judgement if no person has been approved by the judging date. The judge should list the name of the nominee in the Judge's Statement once the nominee has been chosen.

Judge's Statement

Harriet Miers has been nominated to the Supreme Court. (I haven't actually seen anything that says the nomination was made formally, but at this point it looks like there won't be any quiet withdrawals, so this counts as the second nomination for our purposes.) The question is whether Ms. Miers is the next person to be confirmed by the Senate for an open US Supreme Court position.
