Claim SC1yes - 1st Bush SpCt nominee approved

Category: Politics:US Politics JUDGED at 100
Owner:7188, ux
Judge:3607, MatrixMan
created:2005/07/01
due date:2007/01/01

The Claim

This claim will be judged TRUE if the first person nominated by George W. Bush to the U.S. Supreme Court is approved by the U.S. Senate.

The claim should be judged TRUE as soon as this first nominee is approved, or FALSE as soon as this first nominee is rejected by vote, or FALSE as soon any other person is approved by the Senate to serve on the Supreme Court. For example, if a second or subsequent nominee is approved by the Senate before the first nominee is voted upon, the claim will be judged FALSE.

If George W. Bush does not nominate anyone in his tenure as U.S. President, the claim will instead refer to the first nominee by a subsequent President. In order to be considered a nominee, the person must be formally nominated for consideration by the Senate. If two or more nominees are presented to the Senate on the same day, each will be considered a "first nominee" for the purposes of this claim, so if any of these "first" nominees is approved by the Senate, the claim will be TRUE. The judge should postpone judgement if no person has been approved by the judging date.

Judge's Statement

My intention is to judge based on the wording of the claim. If the wording is found to be ambiguous or have unintended loopholes, I will judge on the basis of the obvious intent. In any case, I will look for a solution that causes the least damage to FX as a market and game.

This claim will be judged TRUE if Judge John G. Roberts, Jr. is approved by the U.S. Senate. It will be judged FALSE if Judge John G. Roberts, Jr. is rejected by vote. It will also be judged FALSE if any other supreme court nominee is approved before Judge John G. Roberts, Jr.
