President Obama is expected to announce today his three nominations to fill vacancies on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The court, which is often believed to be the second most important in the country, has been stalled and stymied by congressional gridlock over judicial appointments of all kinds.
The president has chosen a law professor, a lawyer and a federal judge.
Todd Zwillich, Takeaway Washington Correspondent, reports on the nominations.
