Pillard Nomination Reported to Senate Floor

by Ed Whelan

As this BLT post details, the Senate Judiciary Committee today, by a straight party-line vote of 10-8, favorably reported to the full Senate President Obama’s nomination of Georgetown law professor Cornelia Pillard to a D.C. Circuit vacancy. (My case against the Pillard nomination can be found in various links in this post; see also NRO’s editorial today against the nomination.)
