Obama to Nominate NAACP Lawyer to D.C. Circuit

Ed Whelan of the National Review reports that President Obama intends to nominate Debo P. Adegbile to the D.C. Circuit:

I’m reliably informed that President Obama is on the verge of nominating NAACP Legal Defense Fund lawyer Debo P. Adegbile to the D.C. Circuit. Adegbile has worked for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund since 2001. Before that, he was a litigation associate at the Paul Weiss law firm for seven years. From what I understand, both of his jobs have been in New York City. I gather that he is 42 or so.

Mr. Adegbile would be President Obama’s second nominee to the D.C. Circuit, which the President has called “the second highest court in the land.” His first nominee, Caitlin Halligan, has not yet received a vote in the Senate.
