The federal courts remain crippled by Republican filibusters of the president’s judicial nominees -- including the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely considered to be the nation’s second most powerful court and is the final word on countless issues concerning our fundamental rights.

The abuse of Senate rules to obstruct judicial and executive branch nominations must come to an end immediately.

President Obama has announced three nominees with superb credentials to fill the critical vacancies on the D.C. Circuit. Tell the Senate: No More Obstruction; Confirm the Nominees and Fill the D.C. Circuit NOW!

      Court cases are backed up resulting in our inability to offer our citizens a speedy trial. This is wrong.

      I hate seeing the Senate's rules used to try to make government so ineffective that the people who did so can then criticize it for being ineffective. Shame!
