End in sight for Georgia’s federal judicial vacancy logjam (premium access)

Excerpt:
Georgia State University law professor Eric Segall said filling the district and appeals court slots is important because the U.S. Supreme Court decides less than 1 percent of the nation’s federal cases.

“Because the justices decide such few cases, less than 100 a year with written opinions, it is crucial that the lower federal courts at both the appellate and trial level be adequately staffed,” Segall said. “The stonewalling of lower court judges … carries great costs.”
