The tireless folks at the Library of Congress's Law Library Reading Room have just launched these two collections of source documents on recent Supreme Court Nominations. The documents include floor debates (Senate debate while in Executive Session), votes, hearing transcripts, and Senate statements (statements made about the nominees outside of Executive Session).
- Supreme Court Nominations - Not Confirmed (covering Robert H. Bork, G. Harrold Carswell, Clement F. Haynsworth, and Homer Thornberry)
- Supreme Court Nominations - Confirmed (covering current justices plus Sandra Day O'Connor and the late William H. Rehnquist)
Beware! These documents are all in PDF format and some are quite large.
