Hearing on Wallace Nomination


The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Mike Wallace’s nomination to the Fifth Circuit will take place on Tuesday at 3:30.  It should come as no surprise that the ABA’s supplemental review of the Wallace nomination—which was triggered by the recent Democratic shenanigans that required the re-submission of the nomination and which was presumably limited to the months since his first review—again yielded a “not qualified” rating. 


For my exposition of the severe defects in the ABA’s rating of the Wallace nomination, see this summary post (and follow the links in it) and this recent National Review article.
