Included is the webcast of the hearing considering Gerard Lynch for a spot of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and Ms. Smith for DOJ Tax AAG. The questions to and answers of the nominees are interspersed, so readers wishing to focus on only one nominee will just have to fast forward to the pertinent sections.

DOJ Tax AAG Designate Smith gets Senate Judiciay Committee Approval

The Legal Times has an article on the approval of Ms. Smith here. The approval was on party lines. The Republicans stated complaint was her lack of relevant experience.

I previously blogged Ms. Smith's nomination here.

The article also reports the committee's approval of U.S. District Judge (SDNY) Gerard Lynch for the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. This nomination was approved on voice vote without dissent.

Thanks to the Tax Prof Blog here from which I picked up this item.
