Supreme Court Nominations - Law Library of Congress (Library of Congress)

Supreme Court Nominations - Law Library of Congress (Library of Congress)
This website from the Law Library of Congress provides a great deal of insight into the Supreme Court nominating process, including "Nomination Documents" of those "Confirmed" and "Not Confirmed". There is a chart in each of the previously mentioned sections which includes the date of nomination, date of confirmation or other result, the available nomination "documents" and who they were nominated by and who they replaced. Some of the nomination documents available are "Floor Debates", "Floor Vote", "Hearings", "Senate Floor Statements", and "Executive Report", although they are not all available for all justices at this time. The "Selected Resources" section lists recent Supreme Court nominees, some who were confirmed, and some who were not. Clicking on each nominee will provide a set of links that provide different resources for each nominee; resources include "Articles/books by", "Congressional Documents", and even "Video" of some of the nominees featured here.
