This graphic was originally published on September 9, 2015, and was updated to reflect the most recent judicial confirmation data through the end of 2015. In 2015, the U.S. Senate has confirmed just 11 federal judges to the bench, and the number of judicial emergencies has nearly tripled. As the graphic below shows, this is the worst obstruction of judicial nominations in more than half a century. As a result, millions of Americans are being denied access to justice.
