FDR intimidated the Supreme Court after they found several of his New Deal programs to be unconstitutional. FDR proposed that when any Court justice who had reached the age of seventy and did not resign or retire, one additional justice could be added to the Court. This bill did not pass but over the next four years he did replace seven justices with his own picks.
