Trump poised to nominate slate of federal-court judges

Trump has already made one federal appeals court nomination, selecting federal district judge Amul Thapar for a seat on the 6th Circuit.

Following the successful confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Trump is expected to name new nominees to the federal bench Monday a White House official confirmed, in a move to fill almost 130 federal court vacancies. The New York Times reported on Trump's planned court selections earlier.

Trump's move - which will take his total number of judicial nominees to 12 - marks the administration's first attempt at making a sizable dent in the large number of vacancies across the federal judiciary. Larsen will be nominated for the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Stras to the St. Louis-based 8th Circuit. She graduated first in her class from Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago, served in President George W. Bush's Justice Department and taught at the University of Michigan Law School.

"President Trump is building on the success of his nomination of Justice Gorsuch with an outstanding new slate of nominees for the lower federal courts", said Carrie Severino, chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network.

The Trump campaign a year ago listed Larsen as a possible candidate for Scalia's seat on the nation's highest court, an opening that eventually went to Justice Neil Gorsuch.

I just don't care", he said. "They played hard and we didn't", sighed Getzlaf. "We don't feel there will be any residual effects". Getzlaf pointed out that the roster has changed drastically since the 2013 series that kicked off this weird streak.

A conservative approach to judging didn't give Republican Senators pause when Neil Gorsuch was nominated to the Supreme Court.

President Trump's other appellate nominees are equally impressive: attorneys Kevin Newsom for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and John Bush for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and perhaps most notably Notre Dame law professor Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
