“This is a really astounding time in terms of the history of the Supreme Court,” says Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California, Irvine School of Law. “There’s a seat that’s been vacant since February 13, and we’ve had a nominee that’s gone longer than any nominee in American history and then was not confirmed. President Trump is going to appoint a new Justice. We have three Justices that are 78 or older. There’s the prospect of significant change on the Court in a relatively short period of time.”
