Senate Democrats

Cloture filed on McHugh, Leitman, Levy, Michelson, and Parker nominations

On Thursday, March 6th, Senator Reid filed cloture on the following nominations in the following order. The corresponding post-cloture debate time in is parentheses following each nominee.

-        Executive Calendar #563, Carolyn B. McHugh, of Utah, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Tenth Circuit (30 hours)

-        Executive Calendar #577, Matthew Frederick Leitman, of Michigan, to be United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Michigan (2 hours, equally divided)

-        Executive Calendar #578, Judith Ellen Levy, of Michigan, to be United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Michigan (2 hours, equally divided)

-        Executive Calendar #579, Laurie J. Michelson, of Michigan, to be United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Michigan (2 hours, equally divided) and

-        Executive Calendar #580, Linda Vivienne Parker, of Michigan, to be United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Michigan (2 hours, equally divided).

 

When cloture is filed sequentially on several items, the Senate will consider one motion at a time. If cloture is not invoked or upon disposition of the nomination, the Senate would immediately proceed to the cloture vote on the next nomination listed. If cloture is invoked on a nomination, the corresponding amount of debate time will occur prior to a vote on confirmation of the nomination.

 

The first cloture vote (McHugh) will occur at 5:30pm on Monday, March 10th. Following the cloture vote and notwithstanding cloture if cloture is invoked, the Senate will proceed immediately to a vote on passage of S.1917, the Victims Protection Act of 2014. By consent, the time used during the passage vote would count post-cloture, if cloture is invoked
