Joe Biden's Supreme Court Commission Report Could Outline Path to Court Packing

President Joe Biden's commission established to study possible reforms to the Supreme Court will issue "draft preliminary discussion materials" on Thursday in what could be a major win for advocates of court packing.

The 36-person commission was established by the president amid criticism of the court from progressive Democrats and calls for new justices to be added due to the current 6-3 conservative majority.

Many Democrats were outraged when Senate Republicans refused to hold hearings for former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland in 2016 and what they viewed as a rushed confirmation for Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett in 2020.

A group of Democratic lawmakers led by Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Representative Jerry Nadler of New York introduced a bill earlier this year that would expand the number of justices from the current nine to 13.
