U.S. President Joe Biden’s panel considering reforms to the Supreme Court wrote favorably of creating term limits for the high court and concluded in draft findings that while it would be legal to add justices, it may not be wise.

"Unmistakably, the overall trend over the last three decades has been toward more partisan conflict, which has affected nominations to the lower courts, as well as the Supreme Court,” the initial analysis by the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States concludes, after recounting battles over former President Donald Trump’s three nominees to the court.

In a study on the issue of the size of the court, a subcommittee concludes that "we do not believe there is a formal legal obstacle to expansion of the Supreme Court,” but adds that whether justices should be added "as a prudential matter presents a more difficult question.”
