Haynes and Boyle nominations returned to the White House, whatever that means

In some kind of procedural maneuver the significance of which escapes me, the United States Senate has "returned" to the White House the nominations of Judge Boyle and William Haynes to the Fourth Circuit, among others. Presumably, the White House will resubmit their nominations in due course.

Articles on this subject: here (from the Raleigh paper), here (from the Columbia paper), here (from the Richmond paper).

In other nomination news I somehow missed earlier this month, President Bush nominated Liam O'Grady for Judge Hilton's seat on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. Judge O'Grady has served as magistrate judge in Alexandria since 2003. He is a George Mason law graduate.
