Kavanaugh, but Not Boyle

by Jonathan H. Adler

Brett Kavanaugh is likely to be confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuti today.  (Congrats, Brett!)  The prospects for Terrence Boyle do not look nearly so good.  Today’s New York Times reports that Democrats still intend to fight Boyle’s confirmation, and a Bloomberg report yesterday suggested many Republicans want to avoid another standoff over judges.  If true, this is bad news for Boyle (not to mention Haynes, Wallace, and Myers).
