How does a justice become appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court?
A judge or justice is nominated by the executive (the President) for service as a Supreme Court justice during a vacancy on the Court. The nominee is then invited to testify in front of the House and Senate during what are called "confirmation hearings." These proceedings serve to allow representatives time to question the nominee on their qualifications and legal scholarship, as well as to discuss political alliances. Once the nominee is confirmed by a majority vote in the Senate, the justice will take an oath to uphold the Constitution, and becomes a United States Supreme Court justice for a lifetime appointment.
What does the acronym UCC stand for?
The UCC stands for Uniform Commercial Code. It is a model drafted by legal scholars to dictate the suggested statutory language for commercial transactions, and much of it has been adopted in whole or in part by the majority of U.S. states.
