  •  The US Court of Appeals for DC (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Villanova Rhodes

    is hugely important. It handles all sorts of cases involving rulemaking by federal agencies such as the EPA. This is the court that ruled against President Obama's recess appointments to the NLRB.

    The court currently has a 4-3 Republican majority and 4 vacancies. 2 of the 3 Democratic appointees on the court are more than 70 years old.

    It is long past time for Obama's highly rated nominees to join this court.
