Senate Judiciary Committee Approves One More Nominee [CORRECTED]

by Jonathan H. Adler

Legal Times’ BLT reports that the Senate Judiciary Committee favorably reported the nomination of Justice Barbara Keenan to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit today without opposition.  Ranking minority member Senator Jeff Sessions called Keenan, currently serving as a justice on the Supreme Court of Virginia, a “fine nominee.”  The committee also favorably reported two U.S. attorney nominees, also without opposition. 

[As originally posted, I mistakenly wrote that the Judiciary Committee had approved two district court nominees.]
