About This Event
Today, four of the court’s eleven seats remain vacant, including one seat that has been unfilled since 2005. These vacancies have a crippling effect on the court’s ability to decide on critically key cases that impact the lives of Americans across the country, regardless of where you live or the issues you care about.
Please join the Center for American Progress, the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, and the Constitutional Accountability Center for a special presentation on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
