Trump to announce federal court nominees

Larsen, who during the presidential election campaign appeared on a list of potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court, will be nominated by President Donald Trump today to the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, the newspaper reported.

Trump will nominate judges John K. Bush of Kentucky and Joan Larsen of MI for the bench of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Two of them originally were on the list of 21 candidates that the Trump transition team considered for the Supreme Court vacancy left by Antonin Scalia's death, and ultimately filled by Gorsuch. At the start of his term, Trump already is looking at almost 130 judicial vacancies on the lower federal courts.

Investigators believe Teixeira knew the victims and may have been in the apartment with their knowledge the night of the killings. Police found a man and a woman, believed to be in their 40s, suffering from traumatic injuries inside the 11th floor penthouse.

The Trump administration on Monday named 10 judges it plans to nominate for key posts as President Donald Trump works to pack the nation's federal courts with more conservative voices.

Trump said last month that he is considering breaking up the 9th Circuit, a federal appeals court that covers Western states and which has always been a target of Republicans.

The students pelted stones on the cops, who fired tear smoke shells and resorted to heavy baton charge to disperse them. Protests by students of Government Higher Secondary School took place in Ratnipora village in Pulwama today morning.

As longtime Court-watcher Linda Greenhouse recently observed, thanks to Trump and McConnell, the Court has been turned into an electoral prize. Just last month, they triggered the so-called nuclear option to confirm Gorsuch in the Senate with a simple majority instead of the 60-vote threshold.

Four more will be nominated to serve in federal district courts: Dabney Friedrich in the District of Columbia, Terry Moorer in Alabama, David Nye in Idaho and Scott Palk in Oklahoma.

Such nominees give Trump a chance to alter the balance on the courts, as several of his policies already are coming up for review.

This is Trump's opportunity to put his signature on the US judicial system: During his term, he is expected to nominate hundreds of federal judges, and he could fill multiple Supreme Court seats in addition to Gorsuch, who was nominated to take the seat left open for more than a year after the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia. President Clinton put forth his first group of would-be judges in August 1993. He is now on the Minnesota Supreme Court.
