Sad Day For Saad

Michigan Judge Henry Saad was first nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in 1992. He was renominated by President Bush in November 2001. Thursday it looked like the Senate Judiciary Committee would finally vote on his nomination. No such luck. Instead, Michigan Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow raised “serious,” yet undisclosed, allegations against Judge Saad that allegedly question his fitness for the federal appellate bench, and the vote was delayed.
