Administration Plans to Nominate Individuals to Fill the Three Vacancies on the D.C. Circuit

Last week, the Senate unanimously confirmed Sri Srinivasan to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals by a vote of 97-0, filling one of four vacancies on that important court. But that leaves three current vacancies on the D.C. Circuit, one of which has been open since 2005, when then-Judge John Roberts was elevated to the Supreme Court. As we noted last week, it is critical to fill these vacancies on this important court, which is commonly considered second in importance only to the Supreme Court. Filling these vacancies is long overdue.
