Summary
In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt announced the Judicial Reform Bill, popularly known as his "court-packing" plan, which stated that any Supreme Court justice who did not retire by age 70 could be replaced by presidential appointment. His aim was to create a Supreme Court that was friendlier to his New Deal programs. The plan sparked controversy, with Roosevelt's opponents accusing him of trying to assume an amount of power unbecoming of a U.S. president
