Bench Memos

NRO’s home for judicial news and analysis.



Liberal groups are telling journalists that Kavanaugh and Haynes will not be confirmed either.

Just to keep score: filibusters have already led to withdrawal of Estrada, Kuhl, and Pickering, plus Claude Allen who was withdrawn on threat of filibuster. Now, this illegitimately used tactic, supposedly renounced in general use going forward by this agreement, may kill Saad, Myers, Kavanaugh, and Haynes for a total of eight appellate scalps of 52 total nominees.

Let’s hope the rumors aren’t true.
