Last week the Senate confirmed Britt Grant to the Eleventh Circuit. Judge Grant is the 24th federal circuit court judge confirmed during President Trump’s administration—yet another new record for President Trump.
Additionally, before adjourning for an abbreviated summer recess, the Senate confirmed six district judges by voice vote. Confirming uncontroversial judges by voice vote was a common practice in previous administrations. But prior to last week, only two federal judges had been confirmed by voice vote since Inauguration Day thanks to the unprecedented obstruction of Senate Democrats, who have been requiring time-consuming cloture votes for all judicial nominees. Also notable is the fact that of the seven judges confirmed last week, five were women.
And after the Senate returns from recess next Wednesday, the confirmations will continue. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last week filed cloture motions (to end debate) on the nominations of Marvin Quattlebaum and Jay Richardson, nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Their confirmation votes likely will occur the week of August 20th, following post-cloture debate.
Here is this week’s update on federal judicial nominations:
Current and known future vacancies: 181
Supreme Court: 1
Courts of Appeals: 20
District/Specialty Courts*: 160
Pending nominees for current and known future vacancies: 91
