Roger E. Hartley and Lisa M. Holmes find that although the current delay in processing judicial appointments is the longest in recent history, this kind of delay and scrutiny of lower federal nominees is not a new political phenomenon. The authors argue that institutional changes have led the Senate to invigorate its role of “Advice and Consent” and have increased the political scrutiny of lower court nominations.
