Senate Confirms Two District Court Nominees

Last night the Senate confirmed Kevin Sharp to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee on a vote of 89-0, and confirmed Roy Dalton to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida by unanimous consent.

Both nominees fill seats considered to be “judicial emergencies” by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

There are still 91 current vacancies in the federal courts, of which 35 are considered to be judicial emergencies.
