Feinstein’s Judicial Panel

by Jonathan H. Adler

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Senator Dianne Feinstein has created a bi-partisan panel to vet and recommend candidates for federal district court judgeships and other legal positions in California.  President Bush relied upon a similar panel to make recommendations for district courts, and Sen. Feinstein said such an approach should continue. There are four federal district court vacancies in the state, and more are anticipated.(LvHB)
