Supreme Court Quiz: How Much Do You Know About the Highest Court in the Land?

by Hayley Miller March 15, 2016


Do you have to be a lawyer to be a justice on the Court? Do you know the average duration of Supreme Court vacancies?

Take HRC’s quiz now and see how well you know SCOTUS. To take the quiz, just text SUPREME QUIZ to 30644.

Why is brushing up on Supreme Court knowledge so important? Because soon, President Obama will nominate an appointee to the Supreme Court - and if we don't speak up and tell Congress to do its job this year, we could instead be facing a Donald Trump or Ted Cruz appointee next year. 

Just think about the major Supreme Court over the past several decades that have directly impacted the rights of the LGBT community — Bowers v. Hardwick in 1986, Romer v. Evans in 1996, Lawrence v. Texas in 2003, United States v. Windsor in 2013 and Obergefell v. Hodges in 2015. 

This is why last month, HRC joined a broad coalition of 82 organizations in condemning Republican members of Senate Judiciary Committee for their unprecedented obstruction of the U.S. Supreme Court nomination process.

So, after you've taken our quiz on the Supreme Court, join us and tell these Senators #DoYourJob.

He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
