Confirm The Judges

Email Email Print

Robert Novak puts the focus on long-delayed judicial nominees.

Not only should those judges be at the top of the Judiciary Committee’s list of business (along with Feingold’s Folly), but the White House also has to announce new nominees, especially for vacancies on the D.C. Circuit.

Here is a list of judicial nominations which includes information on those made by the president but not acted upon.

Here’s a list that includes vacancies for which no nomination has yet been made.

The White House needs to get the names for the D.C. Circuit announced, and then a push for the confirmation of those three judges, including Brett Kavanaugh, should take center stage in the Judciary Committee. Incredibly, the Committee’s published meeting schedule does not convey any sense of planning for the steady review and vote upon the growing backlog of nominees.

After the confirmation of Justice Alito, the court watchers took a deserved break, but Bench Memos and ConfirmThem and others need to return to the daily business of demanding action from a Senate that has returned to a pace that even Patrick Leahy might have found embarassing during his time as chairman after Jim Jeffords’ big jump.
