The U.S. Supreme Court and the Politics of Appointment -- Judge Charles Porter
Is the present political stalemate over the Presidents nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court unusual in American history? Does filling the current Supreme Court vacancy really matter?

This course will compare the current political battle over the Presidents nomination to the Supreme Court with past presidential nominations to the Court.  

Throughout U.S. history, Presidents have battled with Congress to fill Supreme Court vacancies, as some Presidents have tried to pack the Court with justices that would be supportive of the Presidents agenda.   This course will discuss some of the past battles between the executive and legislative branches of government, including the presidencies of John Quincy Adams, Franklin Roosevelt, and George H. W. Bush, as well as discuss the outcomes of those battles and how they affected the Supreme Courts rulings.

Judge Charles Porter received his B.A. from U.C. Santa Barbara; his J.D. from U.C. Hastings; his L.L.M. from U. of San Diego; and his C.P.A. from U. of Illinois.  He is a retired Municipal Court Judge from Kern County, and a retired ex-officer from U. of San Luis Obispo School of Law, where he taught several courses, including Constitutional Law.  While he was a judge in California, he met all the members of Berger Court personally during visit to Washington, D.C.
