NELA To Participate in White House Judicial Nominations Strategy Session

By Eric M. Gutierrez posted 05-04-2012 07:55 PM

On Monday, March 7, 2012, NELA will join hundreds of advocates convening in the White House for a strategy session on judicial nominations. The meeting will take place the same day the Senate is set to vote on three judges, the last beneficiaries of a deal between Republicans and Democrats to allow confirmation votes to more than a dozen potential appointees who have already cleared the Judiciary Committee but whose confirmations have been stuck for months.

NELA members, Megan O'Malley and Bill Ewing will engage top White House officials on the effects of judicial vacancies in their states, Illinois and Pennsylvania, respectively, and participate in a planning session aimed at moving stalled nominees through the Senate.  Both O'Malley and Ewing will also take on the Hill and discuss the emergency status of their jurisdictions with their home state Senators.  As a member of the Coalition for Constitutional Change's planning committee, I had input in the event's state invitee list and agenda.
