The Supreme Court’s top court vacancy is the third to come up since President Trump took office.
The next vacancy should be decided in December.
Here’s what you need to know about the candidates, the cases and the potential cases.1.
Which states get state appointees to the Supreme Court?: Eight states, including the District of Columbia, receive appointments to state supreme courts.
These include Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island.2.
Which state should get its own appointment to the US Supreme Court: Wyoming is the only state in the country without a state supreme court appointment.
But its Supreme Court vacancy is being filled by the Nebraska Supreme Court, which serves the state’s eastern half.
The state’s chief justice, John Geddes, is the lone member of the Nebraska court.3.
Which other states should be getting their own state appointments?: The first four states to elect governors are Arizona, Georgia, Indiana and Kentucky.
In November, Arizona’s Republican Gov.
Doug Ducey named Chief Justice John Roberts as his nominee for a seat on the court.
Roberts was previously the Chief Justice of the US District Court for the Western District of Washington, and he’s a lawyer with the firm DLA Piper, which focuses on federal and state court issues.4.
Who’s the best qualified candidate to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Judicial Court?: The court’s conservative bloc is likely to nominate a justice who will be a strong conservative on the high court.
A nominee with strong conservative credentials could be a good fit for the court, which is widely seen as the most important federal court in the United States.
The justices in question could be the most conservative and ideologically extreme justices in the nation.5.
How will the justices in this vacancy vote?: The most likely candidates to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat on this court are Alabama’s Jeff Sessions, Georgia’s Don Beyer and Missouri’s Todd Akin.
If a conservative justice were to be nominated, it would likely require a tie vote by the court’s liberal bloc.
The court has traditionally been a highly partisan body, but this year, the conservative bloc’s nominee has become more visible in the nomination process.
A vote could be made for Justice Gorsuch.6.
How many justices would the next president have on the bench?
If there are two nominees, the president could choose from the four current Supreme Court justices.7.
Does the next President have the authority to appoint a justice to the court?
The answer to this question is “yes.”
The Constitution grants the president the authority under Article II, Section 2 to appoint judges.
The president is not bound by a law passed by Congress or signed into law by the president.
In other words, if there are no laws or laws signed by the incoming president, the President can appoint anyone he wants.
The Constitution says that the Supreme Courts are to be made up of Justices “elected by the People.”
But presidents have also appointed judges, and Congress is the body that passed those laws.8.
What if Trump nominates a conservative nominee to the seat of Justice Scalia?
The next president could appoint another conservative to the position.
However, a conservative Justice could potentially take the seat.
There is no precedent for a Trump nomination to the vacancy that is not confirmed by the Senate.
Justice Scalia was 79 when he died in February, so it’s unlikely that Trump would nominate a conservative to replace him.9.
What would happen if a conservative is confirmed?
The Supreme court’s current five justices are all from the conservative wing of the Republican Party.
The other three justices are appointed by Republican presidents.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Court’s liberal justice, is also a former justice.
The court would likely confirm a liberal justice if he or she were confirmed.10.
What about if a Democrat is nominated to the job?
The current justice on the Court is a conservative, which could be enough for Republicans to block any Trump nominee.
The vacancy would then be filled by a liberal.11.
Does any president appoint the president?
No, the Senate can’t do that.
The Senate must confirm a nominee through a vote of 51 senators and a simple majority.
The Democratic president has to be in the majority, and if he doesn’t agree to a nomination, a simple filibuster of the nominee is the next option.
The filibuster, which can take weeks, is called “the filibuster.”
If a filibuster succeeds, a nomination has to pass through another simple majority vote, usually by the Republican-controlled Senate.
The Senate can change its rules to prevent Trump from being confirmed, however.
This would mean the president can only be confirmed by a simple two-thirds majority of the senators, not the 60 votes needed for a filibuster.
The two-third majority would be necessary to block a Trump nominee
