Tomorrow, the Senate Judiciary committee will hold a hearing on pending nominees, allowing for some much needed movement after two months without a hearing. That won't mean much for the Third Circuit, however. Even after six months, the Senate is still stalling on President Obama's nomination of Luis Felipe Restrepo for the Third Circuit.
When Restrepo was nominated last November, he was one of a cohort of seven nominees to federal judgeships. The Senate has held hearings on only two of that group, so far.
What's the hold up?
