Senate Confirms District Court Nominee

Last night the Senate confirmed Mae D’Agostino to the Northern District of New York on a vote of 88-0. Ms. D’Agostino was the 14th judicial nominee to be confirmed during the 112th Congress, and the 76th during the Obama presidency. Forty-four nominees are still pending in the Senate, including 18 who would fill seats considered to be “judicial emergencies” by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
