Conflict Over Keisler

by Jonathan H. Adler

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing on the nomination of Peter Keisler to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit tomorrow.  Yet, as Howard Bashman notes (citing a <i>Legal Times</i> story), some Democrats are seeking to derail Keisler’s fast track to confirmation.  Keisler is a superb nominee, so no doubt some opponents are seeking time to dig up dirt.  Thus far, they seem to have found nothing .
