Haynes nomination to Fourth Circuit moves forward
Howard Bashman has this post noting among other things that the nomination of William Haynes is proceeding to the full Senate, and a link to this statement by Senator Kennedy from Massachusetts in opposition to the committee action on the Haynes' nomination at this time. In particular, Senator Kennedy notes that "[i]n response to the Senate Questionnaire's request for the 'ten most significant litigated matters which [he] personally handled,' he was able to list only three cases that he litigated himself." Mr. Haynes has been employed as general counsel for the Department of Defense, as reported here by the AP.
