Wallace Hearing Likely in Late September

The Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, Miss.) reports that Judiciary Committee chair Arlen Specter (R-PA) is planning a hearing on Fifth Circuit nominee Michael Wallace on either September 19 or 26, depending on the availability of certain witnesses. According to The Clarion-Ledger, the Committee will question an ABA representative concerning its rare unanimous not-qualified rating of Wallace, which was based on several factors, including Wallace’s lack of tolerance and hostility to minority rights.

Check out earlier comments on the ABA’s Wallace rating here, here, and here.
