WASHINGTON, DC— Following news that Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) cosponsored The Judiciary Act, the bill that would add four seats to the Supreme Court, Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon issued the following statement:
“Rep. Raskin is one of the most respected voices in Congress on legal and constitutional issues. He has been a leader in many high-profile fights to root out corruption and protect the rule of law, so it is no surprise that he is again showing strong leadership on the need to reform the Supreme Court to make it more ethical and balanced.”
Raskin is one of fourteen new co-sponsors of The Judiciary Act formally announced this week. Supreme Court expansion has also recently been endorsed by groups like Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Color Of Change, Latino Victory, and several gun violence prevention organizations. It is also supported by several members of the commission convened by President Biden to study possible reforms to the Supreme Court.
