Senator Reid May Press for Vote on Caitlin Halligan’s D.C. Circuit Nomination

Ed Whelan reports at National Review Online that “there is buzz that Senate majority leader Harry Reid may soon press for a floor vote on Caitlin Halligan’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit.”

President Obama nominated Halligan to the D.C. Circuit on September 29, 2010, to fill the seat vacated by Chief Justice John Roberts upon his elevation to the Supreme Court. Since Judge Douglas Ginsburg took senior status earlier this month, there are now three vacant seats on the D.C. Circuit. Yesterday, Whelan reported on a rumor about the possible nomination of Debo Adegbile to the Court.

Update: Mr. Whelan reported that Halligan had “the inside track on the nomination” four months before it was officially announced.
