The Alliance for Justice has released the latest statistics on President Barack Obama's judicial nominees and their confirmation status in the Senate.
Our Federal Circuit and District Courts continue to face a troubling number of vacancies--118 as of this week. Partisan bickering in the Senate continues to hamper the President's efforts to fill these vacancies. Only 55% of President Obama's nominees have been confirmed, compared to 74% of President George W. Bush's nominees and 87% of President Bill Clinton's.
