The Senate just confirmed Judge Bernice Donald to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit — making her the first court of appeals judge confirmed in nearly four months. The last circuit court confirmation, Judge Susan Carney of the Second Circuit, was confirmed on May 17. By contrast, the Senate confirmed five court of appeals judges — Consuelo Callahan, Michael Chertoff, Steven Colloton, Allyson Kay Duncan, and Richard Wesley — during the exact same period in George W. Bush’s presidency.
