As we previously mentioned in an earlier blog post, Magistrate Judge Leonard P. Stark has been nominated by President Obama to fill the current D. Del. vacant judgeship. (see post here) The Senate Judiciary Committee held a confirmation hearing last Thursday, April 23, 2010 regarding his nomination. The committee members may still provide written questions to Magistrate Judge Stark before the committee votes. The nomination must be approved by the full committee and then confirmed by the full Senate.
For a more comprehensive recap of the hearing, below is a link to the Delaware News Journal Article of April 24, 2010.
