Judge Boyle’s 14-Year Trek


District Judge Terrence Boyle’s 14-year trek to the Fourth Circuit is set for an important step tomorrow.

Boyle, who was first nominated by President George H.W. Bush in 1991, was renominated to the Fourth Circuit by President George W. Bush on May 9, 2001. He finally received his Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on March 3, 2005.

Tomorrow the Judiciary Committee is expected to debate and vote on his nomination, which (in the event of a favorable vote) would then be reported to the full Senate for action.
