Judicial Confirmations Proceed Apace

by Jonathan H. Adler

Todd Ruger of the Legal Times reports that the Senate has confirmed nine judges this week.  In addition to Michelle Friedland, a Ninth Circuit nominee, the Senate confirmed eight district court judges. The Senate also voted 60-38 for cloture on the nomination of Kansas Supreme Court Justice Nancy Moritz to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. This clears the way for the Senate to confirm Moritz next week.
