Trump Victory Will Likely Impact Judicial Vacancies

David Coale, a partner at Lynn Pinker Cox & Hurst in Dallas, says last night’s presidential win by Republican Donald Trump could have an impact on vacancies that exist in the federal judiciary.

I’d expect a swift and smooth SCOTUS nomination process with a Republican president and Senate. But there are also a lot of vacancies at the district and circuit levels — the normal vacancies that turn up over time, compounded by a lack of action during the last several months. President Trump has an opportunity to fill those vacancies swiftly and smoothly as well, and I don’t think a President has had an opportunity like that since Reagan.
