You Can’t Have Everything - Herblock

Jan 26 1938

In February 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed legislation that would increase the number of judges on the Supreme Court, which had struck down many of his New Deal programs. Roosevelt saw the Court’s “nine old men” (six of the nine judges were seventy or older) as resisting the will of the president and Congress. The bill would allow the president to add a judge for each incumbent federal court judge who was seventy or older, which would give Roosevelt up to six nominations for the Supreme Court.
