Who Said It: Merrick Garland or Judy Garland?

The Hollywood starlet and Obama’s SCOTUS pick have more in common than you think!

Judy: <a href="https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judy_Garland">Wikimedia Commons</a>; Merrick: J. Scott Applewhite/AP


This week President Barack Obama nominated DC Circuit Court Chief Judge Merrick Garland to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Garland is a highly respected centrist jurist with decades of high-level experience…and he shares a name with Wizard of Oz starlet Judy Garland! So, how well do you know the man who could become Obama’s third appointee to the nation’s highest court? Find out in our quiz!

(H/t to SCOTUSblog for its excellent rundown of Merrick’s judicial history.)
