Reeves Could be Confirmed in Record Time

Former TBA president and Knoxville attorney Pamela Reeves’ nomination to federal judgeship may be quicker than anyone expected, Metro Pulse reports. President Barack Obama’s nominees to the federal bench have been taking an average of 218 to 227 days to be confirmed, but the recent filibuster “fix” worked out between Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republicans has sped up the nomination process. Reeves, who was nominated in May, could be confirmed when the Senate returns from the Labor Day recess or shortly thereafter.
