Summary
Provides overview of the historical tensions between Democrats and Republicans in the Senate regarding judicial nominees to the Supreme Court. Summarizes principal features of the "memorandum of understanding," a bipartisan agreement stating that the seven Republican senators who signed the memorandum would not vote for the "nuclear" or "constitutional" option to end judicial filibusters by a majority rather than a supermajority vote of the Senate; and the seven Democrats who signed would not filibuster judicial nominees except under "extraordinary circumstances."
