Votes scheduled on judicial nominees

Posted By on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 at 10:38 AM

Glenn Sugameli, who follows federal judicial nominations for Judging the Environment, sends word that some of the U.S. Senate logjam on judicial confirmations has been broken and that this should be good news for Circuit Judge Susan Hickey of El Dorado, who's been recommended for confirmation to a judgeship in the western district of Arkansas.

He sent me a copy of a notice to senators about the coming calendar. It indicates that her confirmation has been set for a vote some time after Oct. 11, along with several others nominees. Hickey enjoyed support from both Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor and Republican Sen. John Boozman of Arkansas. Sugameli said 17 other nominations remain in limbo, however, despite unanimous Senate committee approval.
