Beginning with the failed 1987 nomination of Robert Bork for the Supreme Court to the bitter partisan conflict played out during Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, this probing Frontline presentation analyzes the decades-long ideological and power battle fought by conservatives in Congress for control of America's highest court.

While offering critical context on the state of America’s judicial system, the documentary also presents a riveting political narrative about how Bork’s failed confirmation mobilized resolve for revenge among conservatives, resulting in extraordinary politicization of the Supreme Court confirmation process and transformation of the Court itself. Dozens of interviews with current and former U.S. senators, White House and Congressional staffers and insiders, legal experts, authors, and journalists provide revealing insights into the history and outcomes of the ongoing conflict.
