Why a new Supreme Court justice is urgently needed

Ruth Tarrant

16th May 2016

The US Supreme Court is still stuck with just 8 justices following the untimely death of Justice Scalia earlier this year, and the continued attempts by Congressional Republicans to slow the potential appointment of Merrick Garland (President Obama's centrist nominee). Whilst the remaining justices continue to do their job, the current make up of the Court is effectively a 50-50 split between liberals (loose constructionists) and conservatives (strict constructionists). Why is this a problem?
