Court Packing

With the Judiciary Act of 2021 introduced in the U.S. Senate, which would expand the U.S. Supreme Court to 13 justices, and with President Joe Biden by executive order having established the Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States to report on “reform” of the U.S. Supreme Court, I submit that The Florida Bar and its president should announce their opposition to these partisan political moves designed to end the political independence of the Court.

The Bar president and the Bar should advocate for the independence of the Supreme Court like they have advocated for the independence of the Florida judiciary for at least the last 20 years.
