Fewer judicial vacancies?

Yesterday, President Obama nominated 7 people to fill vacant federal judgeships.  You can read the White House press release describing the nominees here.  We have previously discussed the issues surrounding President Obama's nominees--or lack of them--here and here.

Even with the 7 new nominations, there are still 41 seats for which no one has been nominated.  Minnesota does not have any vacancies, but I note that Wisconsin, Illinois, California, and Puerto Rico have open seats.  Mr. Torvik are you ready to serve if your president asks?

  1. Born ready. Some one from DC called my work line yesterday asking if I (or any of my associates, lol) needed a hotel room for the inauguration. Seems like a good sign.
