Time is Running Out: Tell Senators Reid and McConnell to confirm Professor Goodwin Liu
This past Monday, President Obama resubmitted Professor Goodwin Liu’s U.S. Court of Appeals nomination to the Senate after Liu’s nomination was returned earlier in August.
Of 875 federal judgeships, 104 are vacant and 49 are considered "judicial emergencies.” Professor Liu’s nomination to the Ninth Court, which covers Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, is a judicial emergency.
Take Action Now! TellSenators Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell that Goodwin Liu must be confirmed before October 8 when the Senate breaks for the midterm elections!
