No Action on Judges


No appellate nominations made it out of the Senate Judiciary Committee today, despite the special business meeting in S-219.  Senator Patrick Leahy made sure of that.  The meeting did serve a purpose, however, as it will prevent Senate Democrats from holding over the nominations of Peter Keisler for the D.C. Circuit and Kent Jordan for the Third Circuit.  More details on ConfirmThem here and here .
