Sagers Attends Rose Garden Press Conference and White House Summit on Federal Judicial Vacancies

On Tuesday, June 3, 2013, C|M|Law’s James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law Chris Sagers attended a press conference in the Rose Garden, along with a day-long briefing session in the White House concerning the confirmation of federal judicial nominees.  As was widely reported [http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2013/06/04/obama_dc_circuit_judge_nominations/], at the Rose Garden event President Obama announced three new nominations to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, and gave his remarks on the long-running political stalemate over judicial confirmations.  During the closed-door briefing sessions, Sagers and approximately 100 other activists from around the country heard presentations by White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, Special Counsel Chris Kang, and other White House officials on the judicial confirmation process and the political issues surrounding it.  Sagers was invited to this event due to his work on the steering committee of the Ohio Coalition of Constitutional Values, a chapter of the national umbrella organization the Coalition of Constitutional Values, whose major focus is streamlining and de-politicizing the confirmation of federal judges.
