Commission Recommendations Report
On October 31, 2011, the District of Columbia Judicial Nomination Commission (“JNC” or “Commission”) published an historic report of JNC recommendations made to the President of the United States, Presidential appointments to the District of Columbia courts, and the JNC’s designations of the Chief Judges for those courts with the commitment to update the report annually. The report relied on available records, including Congressional and District of Columbia Judicial Nomination Commission records, as well as notices published in the Daily Washington Law Reporter.
This is the first annual update of the report. The Commission Chair, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, gives special recognition and expresses his appreciation to Executive Director Kim M. Whatley and Summer Intern Joseph R.A. Fruth for their tireless and meticulous efforts in researching and compiling the initial information, which spans forty years and encompasses the various branches of both the federal and District of Columbia governments.
