On the W.D. Va. judgeships

VLW reports that Judge Norman Moon of the W.D. Va. is taking senior status, which means that President Obama will have an opportunity to nominate a candidate to replace him, subject to the advice and consent of the United States Senate.

A little while ago, I was added to the Virginia Bar Association Committee on Federal Judgeships for the Western District, and so it appears this committee headed by my old friend Howard McElroy will have reason to meet in the near future.
