Federal judgeship news - Urbanski as magistrate judge, while senators riled over 4th Circuit pick

Two stories via VLW - first, as reported here in the Roanoke Times, Mike Urbanski of the Woods Rogers firm in Roanoke, a commercial litigator and anti-trust expert, has been selected by the judges of the Western District of Virginia as the new magistrate judge to succeed Judge Glen Conrad. Second, the Richmond paper has this incredible story about opposition and snafus in connection with the nomination of William Haynes for the Fourth Circuit seat made vacant by the senior status of Judge H. Emory Widener, Jr.
