WASHINGTON, 14 October (Hfrance.fr) - President Joe Biden's commission studying potential changes to the US Supreme Court warned that increasing the number of judges would be seen as a partisan maneuver , in non-binding documents detailing its discussions made public on Thursday. Committee members discussed whether to increase the number of judges or impose a term limit, according to preliminary documents released Thursday. The documents should be used as a source of debate by committee members who will prepare a report for Biden and deliver it to him by mid-November. With some Democrats wanting to expand the court to counter the Tory majority 6- 3, the commission has warnedso that rather than calm the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court, the expansion could further degrade the confirmation process. There could be major battles over any justice added by a measure to expand the Court. Indeed, a future Senate could respond to enlargement by refusing to confirm a candidate, he said. .
