How many Supreme Court Justices were there?[edit]

Something in this article doesn't make sense. The article says that the Supreme Court was expanded in 1836 from 7 to 9 justices and Catron was the only one of the two appointees who accepted the post. Then when he died, in 1865, according to the article, Congress eliminated his seat taking the Court back to 9 from 10. But how did it get to 10? 208.11.92.3 (talk) 18:11, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

  • It was actually expanded to 10 when the Tenth Circuit was created in 1863. bd2412 T 19:19, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
