Obama Taps 3 for D.C. Appeals Court Vacancies

June 4, 2013

President Obama today nominated a federal judge, a university law professor and an appeals court attorney to fill three vacancies on the 11-seat U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. 

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka applauded the nominations and urged the U.S. Senate “to move expeditiously to confirm these nominees.” In a statement, he said:

The D.C. Circuit is extremely important to working families. The court hears more significant labor-related cases—workplace safety cases, wage and hour cases, unfair labor practice cases and other regulatory cases—than any other Circuit Court of Appeals.
