Academics Champion Colleague's Nomination To 7th Circuit
Dean Larry Kramer is mentioned by Karen Sloan in this National Law Journal article as being one of several law professors who are rallying behind the nomination of University of Wisconsin Law Professor Victoria Nourse to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.
A group of law professors and administrators are rallying behind the stalled nomination of University of Wisconsin Law Professor Victoria Nourse to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.
In a letter sent to the leaders of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on July 14, 51 law deans and professors urged the committee to vote on Nourse's nomination. President Obama first nominated Nourse on July 14, 2010, and nominated her again on January 5.
"Purely as a matter of process, this delay raises serious questions about whether the Senate is fulfilling its constitutional role to provide the President's nominees with a prompt hearing and full Senate vote," the academics wrote. They included Stanford Law School Dean Larry Kramer, Georgetown University Law Center Dean William Treanor and Yale Law School professor Amy Chua.
