Delaware District Court Judge Approved by Senate Committee

It is reported out of Washington today (and also in the Congressional Record ) that the Senate Committee on the Judiciary voted in favor of the nomination of United States District Court Judge Kent A. Jordan to fill a vacancy on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Jordan currently sits on the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, and President Bush nominated him to fill a seat on the Court of Appeals that became available when the Honorable Jane R. Roth moved to senior judge status. The favorable committee vote sets up a vote in the full Senate later this week.
