Bush to renominate Haynes and Boyle to Fourth Circuit, perhaps not Allen

It's old news now, but ACS has this post on the plans of President Bush to renominate Judge Boyle of North Carolina and William J. Haynes, II, late of the Defense Department to the Fourth Circuit in the next Congress.

Howard Bashman deduces here that Claude Allen, like Judge Kuhl from California, may not have wanted to be renominated. Mr. Allen faced opposition from the two Democratic Senators from Maryland, who complained among other things that a Maryland lawyer should be the replacement for the late Judge Francis Murnaghan.
