"Courting Change" interactive tool

Today Reuters launched an interactive "tool" that "examines the composition of the federal appellate bench and U.S. President Donald Trump’s impact on the judiciary. ‘Courting Change’ is a deep dive into how Trump’s vow to transform the judiciary is shaping up, and the graphic will evolve over time as new vacancies and appointments come about."

"‘Courting Change’ provides detailed data on each of the 179 active appeals court judges, drills down on Trump’s picks and looks at how the balance of power may begin to shift in some circuits as Trump appoints more judges. It also provides a breakdown of the appeals court judges by gender, age and ethnicity."
