About Us

Fix the Court is a nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EIN: 86-1840317) that advocates for non-ideological “fixes” that would make the federal courts, and primarily the U.S. Supreme Court, more open and more accountable to the American people.

You can read more on the “fixes” — greater media and public access, Supreme Court term limits, new and robust ethics rules, stronger recusal rules, comprehensive online disclosures, and public appearance notifications — here.

Who Else We Work With

Since its founding, Fix the Court has joined forces with individuals and organizations across the country and across the political spectrum. We’ve co-hosted events with the conservative Federalist Society and the liberal American Constitution Society at two dozen law schools, and we’ve hired advisers with varied backgrounds, including a former chief of staff to the House Republican Whip and a former national labor organizer.

Each week, we work with Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, libertarians and independents, to advance policies that will open up the federal judiciary.
