Take Action

This week, Caitlin Halligan, one of the most respected appellate lawyers in the country, was renominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. She was originally nominated in September 2010 and her nomination expired after a filibuster in December 2011. Upon her confirmation, she would become only the sixth female judge in this court's 119-year history.

Women shouldn't have to wait for justice because some senators are determined to obstruct: Tell your Senators to support the nomination of Caitlin Halligan, a highly-qualified nominee for the D.C. Circuit.

Ms. Halligan has a broad range of legal experience, including government service, private practice, and academia. She has honed her practice in state and federal appellate courts, and has argued five cases before the Supreme Court. Her many accomplishments are reflected by the unanimous "Well-Qualified" rating she received from the ABA Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary. She has earned the respect and support of her peers and has been endorsed by a long list of organizations. The National Women's Law Center is proud to support her nomination.

The D.C. Circuit is widely regarded as the second-most important court in the United States, and there are currently three vacancies on this important court. It is unconscionable that an individual with Caitlin Halligan's legal talents and experience has been waiting a year and a half for a confirmation vote.

Women, and all Americans, are entitled to a fully-functioning court system. Tell your Senators to support the nomination of Caitlin Halligan for the D.C. Circuit.

Thank you for all you do to advance the rights of women and girls.

My mother has arthritis and the aches and pains that go with it. This game is actually the only game that does a poor job with recognition of voice or stylus control. They kind of taste like Cheese Doodles without cheese. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys non-fiction. fertilizer Nothing compares to this candy bar. Good to know they do stand behind their product. unless you open yourself to it. We shall see how it works in the heat of summer. Subsequent readings were lower; not sure why that happened. The shipping happened very quickly and everything was handled very proffesionaly.
