Zachary Courser, Claremont McKenna College, moderator
The Dreier Roundtable is held a panel discussion on the politics and process of replacing Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court bench and how this vacancy affects the political dynamics of the Court, the Senate, and the current presidential race. Our panel of experts will also address how our polarized politics has shaped the nomination process, and how the timing of the current Supreme Court vacancy has the potential for further polarization.
Professor Amanda Hollis-Brusky of the Politics Department at Pomona College, Professors Kenneth Miller and George Thomas of the Government Department at Claremont McKenna College, will serve on a panel moderated by Professor Zachary Courser, Research Director of the Dreier Roundtable.
