Role of Home State Senators in the Selection of Lower Federal Court Judges
Denis Steven Rutkus (au)
Supported by the custom of "senatorial courtesy," Senators of the President's party have long played, as a general rule, the primary role in selecting candidates for the President to nominate to federal district court judgeships in their states. They also have played an influential, if not primary, role in recommending candidates for federal circuit court judgeships associated with their states. For Senators who are not of the President's party, a consultative role, with the opportunity to convey to the President their views about candidates under consideration for judgeships in their states, also has been a long-standing practice--and one supported by the "blue slip" procedure of the Senate Judiciary Comm..
