Arkansas judicial nominee encounters no problems

Posted By on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 3:12 PM

Kris Baker, a Little Rock lawyer nominated by President Obama for an opening on the federal district court bench in Little Rock, was among a batch of judicial nominees before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Conmittee today. Glenn Sugameli, who helps keep me up on judicial nominations at Judging the Environment, reports no hitches.

Sens. Pryor and Boozman both testified in strong support of Baker. Sen. Jon Kyl asked Baker, as he had an another judicial nominee, if she as a judge could set aside support for Democratic candidates as Hurwitz had done. She said yes and the other nominees agreed.

The record remains open for written questions.
