Jordan Approved by Senate Executive Committee Meeting

The nomination of Judge Adalberto J. Jordán to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals continues to move through the Senate. On October 13, 2011, the Executive Committee of the Senate Judiciary Committee met to discuss judicial nominations. The committee moved the consideration of Judge Jordán and a few other nominees en banc, and by vocal consent the Committee agreed to report all of the judges to the Senate Floor. Senator Jeff Sessions called out Judge Jordán’s qualifications (before speaking against one of the other nominees). The portion of the committee hearing discussing the nominations is found at 32:33-40:43.

After being nominated in August and questioned by the committee in September, these nominations are just breezing through the process.
