IN THE NEWS: Vetting a Supreme Court Nominee

The White House is seriously considering Federal Judge Sri Srinivasan as a candidate to fill the current vacancy in the Supreme Court. President Barack Obama is planning  to name a Supreme Court nominee in his last term, in spite of threats from Republicans in the Senate to block any nomination until the next president takes office next year.

Judge Srinivasan was confirmed unanimously by the Senate in 2013 when he was nominated by President Barack Obama to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He has served under both Democratic and Republican administrations and is considered a moderate politically. His potential nomination would challenge the  opposition of senators who have approved and confirmed him only three years ago.
