Judicial Nomination Notes

The Senate today invoked cloture on the nomination of Andrew Hurwitz to the Ninth Circuit.  Todd Ruger has this post at BLT.  Hurwitz has the support of Arizona Senator Jon Kyl, whose opinion I have great respect for.

President Obama nominated Deputy SG Srikanth Srinivasan to the D.C. Circuit.  Chelsea Phipps has this post at WSJ Law Blog.  Srinivasan is supported by his former bosses Sandra Day O'Connor and J. Harvie Wilkinson.

"I just think the world of him," said Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson."I just think he has a superb judicial temperament. He's moderate in his inclinations. I think that he would win respect from many different quarters for the way that he approaches cases."
President Obama also renominated Caitlin Halligan, whose nomination was blocked by a filibuster in the previous Congress.
