Closing in on a Fourth Circuit nominee from South Carolina

South Carolina Appellate Law Blog says here that the nominee to fill the vacant seat on the Fourth Circuit left by Chief Judge Wilkins "will likely be either Steve Matthews of Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, or Judge John Kittredge of the South Carolina Court of Appeals."

The gang at Confirm Them have posted their comments here.

Besides Chief Judge Wilkins, the Fourth Circuit needs replacements for Judge Widener, retired Judge Luttig, the late Judge Murnaghan, and senior Judge Phillips from North Carolina (who took senior status in 1994!). Judge Duncan is still the only member of the Court from North Carolina.
