Inventory of Posts on D.C. Circuit Nominee Caitlin Halligan

Amidst all the talk of other courts that face “judicial emergencies” and despite the fact that the D.C. Circuit is underworked, there is buzz that Senate majority leader Harry Reid may soon press for a floor vote on Caitlin Halligan’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit.
